Netscape 7.01 Mac Os 9 Issue - ACL login problem

Hello, One of our admin users is having problem logging on to his website which is running on iis6/windows 2003 server and acl on the folder he is trying to browse to. Instead of receiving a login box (which he receives if he uses internet explorer) the browser is throwing up the following error “HTTP Error 401.3 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to an ACL set on the requested resource. Internet Information Services (IIS)”. If I browse to the page using Netscape (well mozilla) the login box appears.

Would love to be able to help you unravel this, but your choice on how you'd like to proceed.  Perhaps something on this order is pertinent.

You receive an "Access is denied" error message when you connect to a Web site after you modify permissions in the metabase in IIS 6.0

In Microsoft Windows XP and in Microsoft Windows Server 2003, the Everyone group does not contain the security identifier (SID) "Anonymous." Therefore, users or services that attempt to access an object anonymously are not granted access if the access control list (ACL) on the object includes the Everyone group. Anonymous access is only granted for objects whose ACL explicitly contains the anonymous SID.

When Certificate Services starts on a Certification Authority (CA), a certificate template is unable to load and certificate requests are unsuccessful using the same template.
MORE INFORMATION - The behavior can occur because the Authenticated Users group is removed from the template's access control list (ACL). The Authenticated Users group is on a template ACL, by default. (The CA itself is included in this group.) If the Authenticated Users group is removed, the (enterprise) CA itself can no longer read the template in the Active Directory, and therefore, certificate requests can be unsuccessful.
If an administrator wants to remove the Authenticated Users group, each and every CA's computer account must be added to the template ACLs and set to Read.
If authenticated users have been removed from the ACLs of a template, the following errors may be observed when the CA starts and when a certificate is requested against the template.

Sorry I hadn't come back to this question. None of the answers fitted the bill so what do I do from here?

Thanks, I'll have a look in to these. I am not able to contact the client realyl for a few days so it might take several days before I can get a response out of him.

Since there are so many possibilities and unknowns and you're reliant on client feedback; we may need to explore further.  Just comment with updates here if more is needed, when you can.

Crossing fingers in the hope we've uncovered the roadblock.

Best wishes,
Asta
