Software developer here with very little networking experience looking for info on settings in IIS for hosting ASP.NET web apps...

We're self-hosting a website via an onsite web server (running Windows Server 2003) with IIS 6.0. Anytime someone navigates to our site both externally & internally to the network, a prompt opens asking for a username & password...I've tested in multiple browsers and it does the same in all browsers. I want to turn this off, but don't know how to. We've tried disabling Windows Authentication inside of IIS, but this results in a "You are not authorized to view this page" error.

Any ideas on how I can get around this issue, both internally and externally?

  • Do you have Anonymous access enabled? It doesn't sound like it. – joeqwerty Oct 27 '09 at 23:19
  • yes...Anonymous access is enabled, and Windows Authentication is disabled – Kyle Oct 27 '09 at 23:51

Do the IUSR* account have read access to the actual file-system? Does it work with a static html file/directory listing or anything that doesn't need to execute scripts/asp?

Maybe this applies to your problem?
