Note: Make sure that you use the full qualified domain name (not the IP address and not the short name) in your URL, like http://review-server.example.com:11012/caliberreview/ or http://visualize-server.example.com:11002/calibervisualize/.
Note: Browsers and Caliber Review Server/Caliber Visualize Server must be on different machines, because otherwise Windows will use NTLM instead of Kerberos.
Note: If you use Windows Session Credentials to log onto Caliber Review or Caliber Visualize using Internet Explorer from a shared machine, close the browser after you log out of Caliber Review or Caliber Visualize.
