I have a problem as I want to use a Samba CH3NAS NAS device as storage for my websites in IIS 7.0, Windows Server 2008. They are all ASP.net websites. Surfing to them gives me a 401.2 error -> permissions problem

Error Summary HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized You are not authorized to view this page due to invalid authentication headers. Detailed Error Information Module IIS Web Core Notification AuthenticateRequest Handler StaticFile Error Code 0x80070005 Requested URL http://eva:80/dashboard.sds.be/ Physical Path D:\WEBSITES\dashboard.impactsoftware.be\ Logon Method Not yet determined Logon User Not yet determined Failed Request Tracing Log Directory C:\

I only have a webinterface to configure my NAS device. This allows me to create (unix) users and groups. The users must have a password at creation.

Now, in IIS, when I try to access this device, it tries to access the NAS via COMPUTERNAME\IUSR and its password. The problem is the 'COMPUTERNAME\' (I guess!). In windows, I need to log in to this samba share with only username & password. -> Without computername! In the IIS manager on the server I cannot find the option to log in with this credentials.

I read something about the option "authenticate as guest when computer information is available" but I'm not sure that's what I need.

FYI, the NAS is a conceptronic CH3NAS device, I'm running Win2008 Server R2.

Thanks a lot in advance !
