Web Form Requires Login

By jdmercha ·
I've recently set up a web server using Windows 2003 and IIS 6. I've also installed the FrontPage server extensions. I've created a web form that sends an email to myself. I can call up the web form in my browser and check the boxes. When I hit the submit button, a login screen comes up. If I put in an administrator id and password the email will go out.

I don't want this login to come up. The form only sends an email. It does not write any data to a file. Any ideas what's causing this login box to come up in the first place?

Have you granted anonymnous users right access?

Usually they only have read, list and execute permissions in IIS 6 by default.

I'm betting there is a security setting somewhere that needs to be changed, but where?

From the IIS managemnt console I have granted anonymous access to the directory that the form is in. I included full access rights to the IUSR_### account(Script source access, read, write, directory browsing and allowed scripts and executables), but I stil get the login.

Yes. It's probably rights problem.
If it's not on the IIS, it could be NTFS rights. Remember to check also for the script also.
By the way, how do you send the mail?
Maybe it's a password for sending the mail...?!?

What happens when you don't give the password?

I have also given the IUSR account full NTFS rights to the form.

The form is set up to send mail through an on site email server. The administrator account that allows the email to go through does not match any account on the email server.

If I do not enter the ID and password I get an error message from:

You do not have permission to view this page using your current user account.
Please try the following:


If you have another user account with a higher level of permission, click
your browser's Back button to try again using that account.
If you believe you should be able to view this page, contact the Web site administrator.

Thanks for the help, but I resolved the issue. After three days of fuddling with it, I just uninstalled the FrontPage extensions and reinstalled them. Now it works like it is supposed to.

Form needs Uid / Password

by Brian In reply to

I have noticed this happens when I do not use the "WWW" in the url...

webname.com/
www.webname.com/

Without the www, I get prompted for Uid and password...
