IIS 6 Permissions Question

By matt ·
I am migrating our website from a WIN2K setup that was on IIS5. I used MS's migration tool and it seemed to copy everything over, including the Frontpage Extensions.

I am unfamiliar with both Win2003 Server and IIS6. I am trying to test the website on a local IP before going live. Everytime i do i get the Window's Authentication Logon Prompt. It seems this is a permissions/security issue, but i haven't been able to find it yet. How do i get the server to allow anonymous Internet User access? It created the "IUSR_computer name" by default. That in turn is a member of the group "Guests".

(I get HTTP errors 400 and 401.1.)
Thanks for you help.

open up IIS. in the left pane, expand web sites. find the web site in question. right click and choose properties. click the security tab. Click the Access radio button. Check the box "allow anonymous connections. click ok. close all pages. Stop then restart the web site [right click the web site and from the menu options choose stop. right click again and choose start.

Looks like CG_IT answered the Q but I would also check the "Gest" account permissions and the security policy permissions as this could cause a problem as well

Hey Guys thanks for your help. I double checked the setting that you referenced. I think that it was covered during the website creation wizard. I am really leaning on it being a Server 2003 permissions issue.

Under our old Win2k server we had the IUSR_name account for anonymous access. The ISUR_name was a member of "Web Anonymous Users" and "Guests" groups. The guest user account was disabled. And under the Security panel that you mentioned the method of Authenticated Access is "Integrated Windows Authentication".

The new server is Windows 2003 Web edidtion. Everything is the same with this exception. The IUSR_name user account is a member of the "Guests" group only.

Now the error is "you are not authorized to view this page". Depending if i have the Windows Authentication checked or not the User Logon box will come up.

It seems like there is something small that i am missing. Any thoughts? I appreciate your time.
