Re: Multiple authentication not working

not a solution however, for 'firefox' you may follow following steps for
a) close all but one firefox sessions
b) go to url "about:config"
c) in the find key "network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris" .. double click ..
add the 'svn server URL in it'
d) close firefox .. so that it saves tis config change
e) open firefox and go to the SVN URL .... it should provide single sign on.

also, your config has two sets of Basic Auth providers "SSPIOfferBasic On" &
"AuthType Basic" section. u should try with "SSPIOfferBasic Off". You may
wanna ask this to folks @ Apache Httpd user mailing lists as this is some
what outside SVN and more into Apache domain!
