IIS virtual directory 'connect as' to network location on another server. The UNC is '\\I95\it\HR'. IIS 'connect as' user is a domain account called IISUser. This user has been given read and execute, list, and read permissions on the HR folder.
I can access this page - http://hr/managers.shtml
and then there are links like the following, http://hr/Managers/Pre-Self%20Identity%20Form.PDF
, which point to the 'Managers' sub folder in the HR directory.
When I click a link I get prompted with a 'Connecting to' login prompt 3 times, and when I use an account that does have access via NTFS - I still get an error message saying:
"You are not authorized to view this page"
This folder '..\Managers' has been secured using NTFS permissions so that only domain users in the correct GBL groups have access to the docs and pdfs that are linked.
Can someone tell me why IE is not passing the current user token so that if people are in the right groups they will be able to acces this location? Or, if the user must be prompted, why is their domain credential not allowing them to access/open the docs and pdfs that are linked.
Is this an issue with the IIS security setting or the NTFS permissions?
