IUSR account help
Posted on 2005-03-14
I'm having trouble creating Virtual Directories on my site. I'm using the IUSR account for anonymous access to the virtual directory (this is on a W2K domain) but for some reason it won't work. I've reset the IUSR password in Active Directory and made sure the user has read acccess to the directory that I am using as the virtual directory. After creating the Virtual Directory there is an error sign for the icon of the directory instead of the normal icon.
I tested with my own username password for anonymous access and it works fine, however I am a Domain Admin.
I've also tested on a different folder and that works fine also with the IUSR account. So I'm pretty sure this has something to do with security on the folder level but I've checked & rechecked to make sure the IUSR account has access to this folder.
Please help with any advice to fix this problem. Thanks
