Hello.

I'm writing a delphi activex component that sends http requests to IIS.
The IIS is configured to challenge response authentication only, and the activex keeps getting an access denied (401) error.

How can I configure the activeX to support chjallenge response?

If ActiveX is part of EXE then it has same access permissions as user who launched EXE, if ActiveX is embedded into Web Browser You need grant anonymmus access on IIS.

The thing is that I do NOT want to grant anonymous access on my IIS, since I need it to other parts of my application.

As I understood ActiveX is part of EXE, then Your problem is not ActiveX but assign apropriate permissions to users that might launch EXE containing Yours ActiveX

No, my activex is a part of a web application: meaning, it's a part of an html page. It sends http requests since it supposes to retrieve some files and handle them in a special way.

in this situation ActiveX is running in WebBrowser's security context and IIS will always treat it like Guest account unless You type valid username & password (when chalange/response is enabled and IIS cannot recognize calling user then username/password window is shown).
