turn off anonymous authentication on the webserver (IIS admin - properties of website - 'directory security' tab, 'anonymous access and authentication control' - turn off all options except for 'Integrated Windows Authentication'

now make sure that the correct users have ntfs rights to the web content...

you'll have to locate the web contect on the harddrive of the server...it's probably in \inetpub\wwwroot , but if the website uses 'virtual directories', it could be anywhere on the server.

In IIS admin, if you right-click on the folders in your website, and look in the proerties, there's a value called 'local path'. This will tell you the path. If it's relative (ex. \images), then it's relative to the webroot folder, so look in the properties of the website and see what the root folder is (the 'home directory' tab).

once you locate the folders that make up the website, right click them and look under properties and then the security tab. Make sure the correct users (or groups) have at least read access for html content....

I could connect through my local machine. Some people have complained saying that they cannot connect. They get "You are unauthorized to view". I tried with Netscape in a different computer, it is not even asking for the password - it directly says "You are not authorized to view". Any thoughts!!!!
