Hi Experts,

I have IIS with a client who wants to post his ms docs on the server, I have set up the user permisions and anom access but when I browse to the location  IIS asks me for a password, clicking cancel allows me to see the document anyhow - why is it asking me for a password? and how do I get rid of the password box?
