I'm not sure if this is the correct area for this question, but is seems like the most appropriate so I will post it here. If someone thinks it belongs in the Networking area then I'll put it there.
Anyway, here's my question...
I am using IIS3.0 on NT4.0. Everything that I have done so far has worked just fine. I now want a link on my web page to reference something on a Netware server. This doesn't work so well.
Let me give you an example...
If I have
this works fine because my browser knows that my home directory is wwwroot and therefore will point to
But if I want to get to my Netware server, I can't just say
[where H: is mapped to my netware server]
because drive letters are meaningless to IIS.
So, since I can't use drive letters to specify where my links will go, I believe the only way to get there is by setting up a virtual directory in the Internet Service Manager.
So I go to the directories tab and click "Add" and specify which drive and folder I want to point to and I give the virtual directory a name and click "Apply".
When I refresh my list of directories I see my new entry, but it has a red stop sign by it saying that "The specified network password is not correct." Which password is it talking about?
I am already logged into the Netware server with the same ID and password that I use on the NT web server. It seems like the IIS service itself is trying to somehow authenticate itself on the Netware Server. Is my assumtion correct? Does anybody else do this? and How do I get Netware to let my IIs server in?
If anyone has any info on this I would really appreciate it. If there is another way around this, I am open to that as well.
