How to get rid of the "Enter network password" dialog
Posted on 2006-05-03
I have a new Windows server 2003 64 bit R2.
All was fine, until I wanted to add support for .Net 1.1, in addition to .Net 2.0.
To shorten a long story, it was no success at all. The application pool crashed, the users logging into my site got "Service Unavailable" and so on - a real night mare.
Having struggled with this, I finally uninstalled the .Net 1.1.
Now the application pool does not crash anymore, horay.
But - now I have something else to try to solve, when accessing the web site(s), the user is presented with a
"Enter network password" dialog. I am sure this has to do with security or permissions.
The only thing I want is to set the system back as it was right after installing Windows Server 2003, where I could just put a DEFAULT.HTM in the root folder and the whole world could open it without any hassle at all.
So - how do I get things back to normal?
