Mac users need password to logon webpage

By FatUncleAL ·
I have a NT server running IIS 4, default website is for the library in a school. We have Mac clients used to just type in the IP address/website page and go right in without any problem. Lately, when we type the IP address/page in the browser, a logon window popup asking the user name and password to logon to NT. We also have PCs, and they have no problem. As far as I know, nothing was changed. I checked the Properties of the default website, Anonymous user authentication was checked. Please help. Thanks.

Hi,
There are a couple of things that might cause this. If there is a problem with anon access, your NT clients may well still be able to view ok. This is because IIS will request and receive their account details automatically, and as domain members they will have access to the files.
First thing I'd try is taking off anonymous and reapplying it. It may be that there is a subfolder that is specifying different security, if so then when you apply your 'changes' you will be told that. Next, you have to check the NTFS settings on ALL of the files in the site. The anonymous access will only work if the anonymous account (usually IUSR_computername) has access to all files. Finally, confirm that the IUSR account password has not been changed (or check that the 'let widows control the password' box is ticked).
