I have recently installed an application on a W2K IIS server and want all users to authenticate to use the web page.  I have disabled the anynonmous check box but the page still does not request the user to login.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

did you check 'integrated windows authentication' at the bottom of that page on the IIS settings?

The users may have "Automatic login only in Intranet Zone" turned on.
On the client machines, go to IE > Tools > Security Tab > Click Local Intranet > Custom Level
Scroll to the bottom where it says "User Authentication"
"Automatic login only in Intranet Zone" Means that it will always try and log on using current credentials first when in the intranet zone, if that fails, it prompts for username/password.  If you change it to "Prompt for user name and password" they will always be prompted.

You might also have to check the other security zones for this setting as well just in case.

Many thanks to each of you responding.  Each one of you had good answers but were not correct.  I wanted to split the points to each of you for responding to my question.  The solution to the problem was actually right in front of me.  I had set the security so only Integrated NT users could access the web site.  It did not dawn on me that the only users of this web site were internal users who by default authenticate to the domain, thereby no request would me made to that user to login because they had already been authenticated to the domain.  We tested this by logging in locally to a workstation and then accessing the web site.  The web site then requested the user to authenticate.  As they say, sometimes you are just two close to the forest to see the trees.

Thanks
Kenny
