First off, sorry for posting this twice, the first one was in the FLEX forum, but probably should have been here.
I am using Basic Authentication on a REST Service which I have deployed to my local tomcat system. I also am using the same domain (which is named default right now) to secure access to my FLEX application. When I try to hit /root/FlexApp/FlexApp.html I get prompted with a username/password box, which I enter the correct information in and it logs me in. If I then try to have my FLEX App access the REST Service I get inconsistent results. In Firefox this works everytime no problem. In Internet Explorer everything works the first time, but if I close the browser and log back in it seems that the credentials used to access the Flex App are not used when invoking the remote service giving me a 401 Unauthorized error. Can anyone provide me some details on how to track down what is causing this discrepency in the way this works in IE vs Firefox?
I am using FLEX 3, ie 7 and FF 3. Any pointers would be a great help.
