Problems using IE

We are trying to access our new website database using IE, but the database is asking for a username and password even though anonymous is set to Reader.

What I think is happening is then when we open IE and type in the web address and hit Enter, our proxy server asks for a password.  The website will ask for a password, but if I click Esc and then F5 (refresh) the web page appears.  This does not happen if I log on to yahoo first then go to our web site

I think the database is trying to log me on as my proxy server name and password.

Is their any way to allow domino to ignore incorrect usernames and password and give them default access.

well anonymous access is the way to do that of course.

Are you nor by any chance opening a form with ?openform. This requires at least author access.....

Hello Andy,

to see wath UserName is actualy in use when you get this error look into domlog.nsf exact at the time when you try to access your side.

We had simelar problems on our side when configuring a special translator from ssl to http (do not ask for details; it is a stupid and expensive solution). Problem has been the default gifs (tweesties, blanks) in notesdata/domino directory!
what happens if you let anonymous with editor ?
if that will work, make sure that upon opening the DB you do NOT do ?openform - for that is for editors or public forms.

best would be to use ?readform for that stuff.

Have you thought of "Maximum internet name & password" too?
See ACL > Advanced....

If set to "No access", Anonymous still is not a reader....
if maximum internet access is set to no access, no one will have access to the system.
anonymous or not.
