I have an Alpha Server which houses a database for us. I created a web page which would liknk to a login page on a Windows 2003 server. Worked like a charm - until yesterday, I turned off something - what did I turn off? Any ideas?

No, IIS is on.
I can get to the page:
www.easternmercantile.com/cnet

Click on either button - then click a button and it won't let you into the logon page of the database.
It looks like it stopped allowing the scripts to run.

I got to the point of being in the internal network. One of your links is messed up, while the other leads to a page that I'm not supposed to have permission to see. Exactly how was it working before?

That is the point - you should see a log in page. I think I did something to change firewall settings or something like that.
Because I tried to use the Browser and ran the set up wizard.
What do you mean the other link was messed up. I get the same message from either one.
Looks like you disabled all access to the scripts directory in IIS.

I concur. Do you have any idea what part of Windows you were in when you changed stuff?

Commented:
Make sure scripts are enabled in the IIS setup for the site...

Hi JimmySupport,

I got this error when trying to log in:
HTTP Error 403.6 - Forbidden: IP address of the client has been rejected.
Internet Information Services (IIS)
If this is not supposed to occur then follow the instructions at:

Commented:
Hmmm it is working fine here on my end....  I am on your site now

Commented:
Ahhh... Sorry, you need to go to Administrative Tools, IIS, right click on the domain name, then click on directory security, and for now, you need to make sure it says "By default all computers will be" GRANTED ACCESS

Hi,

If you are using ASP or PHP or any other script language then you have to enabled it from the IIS

IIS>website>website extension > allow all the extensions

Can you tell me the which folder you can access

You have to also check the permission on the that folder .

You are getting friendly error in your Internet Explorer so please use the following setting in the IE so you get actually error in IE

the following configure to see actual error not friendly error.
   Internet explorer > Tool >Internet Options > Advanced > Turn off Show friendly HTTP error
