Unchecked "Allow IIS to control password" brings up login prompt for anon users.
Posted on 2004-08-25
I'm using IIS5.1 on Windows XP Pro.
I need to have a specific password set for the IUSR_MachineName user. But whenever I uncheck the checkbox "Allow IIS to control password" (under Anonymous access) and set a password in the password field, anonymous users (ie: internet users, anon network users) get a login prompt when they visit my site.
How can I set a password for IUSR_MachineName, but also allow access to anonymous users without showing a login prompt.
Any help is appreciated. I can always increase the points to.
