I am trying to display an image stored in the database from an html page. Before setting security mode to Tamino, I could access this file directly (http://host/tamino/db/collection/Image/myImage.svg). How can I include the user name and password in this path so that I can retrieve the image?
This is a browser limitation. Using IE with Microsoft Security Update MS04-004 you can not supply the user-ID and password with a URL any longer.
See the Microsoft Security article for the details about this, why Microsoft changed this and how (if you need) to modify this behavior.
Another option to modifying the regfile to get the old behavior back (Microsoft’s solution), would be to use another browser that does support passing the user-ID and password from a URL. As an example, Mozilla still has this functionality.
my other reply to this question.
