After I upload a MS Word Doc file on my IIS 6 server for my user to download and view, IIS ask for user creditials after download, not before. Annoying for users since this word file is open to public.  Just MS word files, doesn't happen with excel or pdf files. Is it a permission issue or browser issue or iis6?

    Hi wlyou,
    check the permission of the folder or file have everyone permission or not.

    Have also define the mime type in the IIS for .doc file.

    Please make sure that your .DOC isn't password protected.
