    Hi wsfindlater,

    1) Open IIS Manager.
    2) Right click the website
    3) Click on the "Directory Security" tab.
    4) Click "Edit" for "Anonymous Access and authentication control".
    5) Enable anonymous access.

    and in case jss1199's answer isn't the full resolution, check NTFS security settings on the server and make sure that IUSR_servername has read access to the directories with the website, and make sure the local security policy allows IUSR_servername to access the computer from the network, and make sure the IUSR account is enabled.
