It would be worth double checking that the site you are accessing is listed
as an Intranet Site.
If it's an Intranet site IE and NTLM will negotiate authorisation

Do this in IE: Tools / Internet Options / Security / Local Intranet / Sites
/ Advanced / (add your site)

I suppose it's possible the settings were removed when you did the IE
I have IE6 (have had many versions) and Tomcat and it all worky for me :)

inconsistent username and password prompting

	I just upgraded my IE to version 6.0.2800.1106
	I had an application which resides in tomcat and used jcifs for
authentication and single signon.
	However, being successfully tested previously (before my IE
upgrade), it begin to prompt me for username and password (BASIC
Authentication style)
	I've read through some FAQ on this issue and also visited the site
<http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q258063>   but no
matter how i configure, I was not able to by pass the authentication pop up
from IE 6.0
	I configured my web.xml as follow:
	 <filter-name>NTLM HTTP Authentication Filter</filter-name>


	    <!-- NTLM HTTP Authentication only works with MSIE-->
	             <filter-name>NTLM HTTP Authentication
	The weird thing is, the authentication pop up only occurred to some
of the machine in my office but not all, and the fact that we are all using
the same IE version 6.0,
