Allow access to inetpub on my PC

Hello Experts,
I have set my WIN2000Pro machine up with IIS and started developing an ASP web site with Dreamweaver for our Intranet.
I need to let another developer work on this site also.  When she tries to set it up in Dreamweaver, it is unable to find the site.
So far I have done the following:
-Shared the inetpub folder on my machine and granted her full access.
-Mapped the drive on her computer.
-I have set the IIS server up for Authenicated Access
I have also went out to my browser and typed in http://mycomputername/login.asp to try and
access the site, and it prompts me for a username and password.
I am fairly new to setting up IIS so I think that is where the problem is.
Thanks for any help

goto home directory tab - here we have to give the "localpath" point it to the folder where we are placing the files and this directory should contain  the initial file that has to show up ie "login.asp"

go to documents tab - tick the enable default contents page if it is not there

Add "login.asp" to the list if not add it.

we can use any page as the opening page we have to just specfy here

for the other developer to access the site he has to type in the ipaddress of your system

Did you setup Dreamweaver to connect to remote host via FTP or via Local/Network?

When she opens up the inetpub folder on her computer is she able to see the files?
0
 
ChadMarshAuthor Commented:
Yes she can see them.  She can even edit and save them within dreamweaver.  She just can't preview.  When she goes to preview it asks her for a username and password.  When she types in her network u and p the page denys her.

thecode101Commented:
So, without using Dreamweavers preview, if she goes to the address of the server in a browser does it also ask for a user name and password?

ChadMarshAuthor Commented:
Yes. I can preview it OK with Dreamweaver, but if I try to directly access it from my browser, I also get propted for username and password

Try changing IIS authentication to anonymous access and see if that works.

just tick the checkbox 'Integrated Windows Authentication' under default website> properties>Directory Security>edit>Authenticated access....should do the job!

I tried changing to anonymous and is doesn't prompt for a password, but still displays a page error.  This is not an option for me since I am capturing the USER_LOGON server variable.

I have Intgrated Windows Authentication check also.

hi

can you just try to do the following

1) open IIS manager
2) expand your server name
3) go to websites and expand
4) it generally contains default web site
5) right click goto properties
6) goto home directory tab - here we have to point it to the folder where we are placing the files and this directory should contain  the initial file that has to show up
7) go to documents tab - check if default.asp is present in the list if not add it. we can use any page as the opening page we have to just specfy here
8) check if the website is stopped if so start it by right clicking or by clicking the button at the top
9) check the TCP port the default is 80
10) now try accessing it from the same system by giving http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost

it might work.

try it out and reply back if it gives any errors

in the home directory tab

select the "read" and "write" check boxes and unselect the "directory browsing" so that when you open the webpage teh list of files is not displayed

I did you steps.  I can access it if I use http://localhost/login.asp which is my start page.  If I try just local host I get a
an error that says
Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.
Also the other developer still is unable to access the site.
