Windows 2000 Server - IIS Basic Authentication not working
Posted on 2003-11-12
Ok, I have setup on our server the ability for users to connect into a local intranet website via IP and type their windows domain username and password in to authenticate. The website is setup with a certificate and 128-bit encyrption. I don't think any of that matters, just a little background.
The problem is only administrators can successfully log in and get to the website. If a user that doesn't have administrator privledges on the domain can't login. According to all the documents I have read, this is not how Basic Authentication should function. I have only that box checked under the directory security tab.
I have tried giving physical NTFS rights to a user to the directory in inetpub/wwwroot/, I have tried add members to the operators tab of the website, and seeing if they can authenticate that way and it hasn't worked. I have also tried a mulitude of combinations with the directory security choices and came up with zero. Any ideas?
