Avoid login through Windows integrated authentication

I have enabled integrated Windows authentication (through the multiplexing provider) on my EPiServer site so now I am able to log in to the site with my Windows account. However, I thought that if I am already logged on to Windows with that user I would not have to log in again each time I open the site. Am I doing something wrong since it does not work like that? Or is there some other way to avoid having to log in each time I open the site?

Can you not just check the 'Enable automatic logon' checkbox when you login?

I'm guessing you've already enabled Integrated Windows Authentication in the IIS. Have you tried to just use the Windows membership and role provider (instead of multiplexing)?

So if I use only Windows Authentication I don't have to login? However, it is not an option, I need multiplexing because I need to be able to use the SQL provider also.
My site does not have an 'enable automatic logon' checkbox, but maybe I should implement that..

The problem is that you cannot mix FormsAuthentication and WindowsAuthentication in the same site, you would have to select either.

One could possibly write a custom authentication handler that performs the NT Challenge/Response on its own before the FormsAuthentication kicks in, but that
would require quite some coding and is not so easily done.
