Configuring the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Client Address as a Trusted URI in Firefox

If the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client is configured to use Windows authentication, then to open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client from a computer other than the computer that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components, you must add the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address to the trusted URI list in Firefox. Otherwise, you will receive one of the following errors when you try to open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client.

A server error occurred, and the content cannot be displayed. Refresh the page or open a new browser window.

401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.

There are two different trusted URI lists that you can add the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address to: network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris and network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris. The list that you use will depend on the authentication provider that is used by the website that is running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client. Use the following guidelines to determine which list to use:

  • If the website uses the negotiate authentication provider, then add the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address to the network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris list.

    The negotiate authentication uses Kerberos authentication if it is configured on clients. If the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web Server components and Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server are running on separate computers, then add the address to this list.

  • If the website uses the NTLM authentication provider, then add the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address to the network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris list.

  • If you do not know which authentication provider is used, then add the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address to both lists.

To configure the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address in Firefox

  1. Open Firefox.

  2. In the address box, type about:config.

  3. To add the address to the network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris list, do the following:

    1. In the Search box, enter network.automatic, and then double-click the line network.automatic-ntlm-auth.trusted-uris.

    2. In the Enter string value dialog box, type the address that you use to open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client, for example, http://myNAVServer:8080/DynamicsNAV71/WebClient.

    3. Choose the OK button.

    If there is already an address in the box, separate the existing address and the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client address by using a comma.

    1. In the Search box, enter network.negotiate, and then double-click the line network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris.

    2. In the Enter string value dialog box, type the address that you use to open the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Web client, for example, http://myNAVServer:8080/DynamicsNAV71/WebClient.
