I have a public-facing web server (Windows Server 2008, IIS 7) with a web site which allows anonymous access. I have a subdirectory on this site which I have protected by disabling Anonymous Authentication and enabling Windows Authentication.
Working remotely, I have no problem logging in (any browser) to see these protected pages using:
username (no domain)
But... when there is an ASP.NET runtime error, I have to run at on the server in order to see the error. Here's the problem: For some reason, I cannot log in to these protected pages running IE8 on the server. The login dialog box pops up, but no login/pw works in any variation I've tried. What am I missing here? What is the format the server is looking for?
Edit: username/password is just a Windows login.
