Double-check your NTFS permissions on the folders containing your website content.  Make sure that the anonymous user account (IUSR_<servername> by default, but it can be any account) has proper access permissions.  Also, if the password was changed for the account configured as the anon user account in AD, the anon user configuration in IIS would have to be updated as well.

Check your site configuration to see if you have any kind of authentication method configured.  Also, are you using some sort of server-side scripting, ie. ASP, PHP, etc.?

Have you enabled anonymous access in IIS configuration (in inetmgr) ?

inetmgr > Websites > property  > Directory Security Tab > Authentication and Access Control

Click on Edit tab

Check "Enable Anonymous access" check box.

Hi,

This is happening due to the IUSER permission removed so please assign IUSER permission on all the website again.

Hi,

I have check and found that your sites are asking for password because you have assign wrong NS record and multiple A record for your site and your site request go to multiple server IP Please check the following.

1. A record of your site are pointing to multiple IP so please check the following URL.
http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/lookup.ch?name=ashteq.ca&type=A

Please point only one server once and delete another IP address for A record.

2. When we check DNS traversal of your site then it go to the IP address 192.168.15.2 and it is private IP not public so your site have not permission to access this IP. Please check the DNS traveral.

http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/traversal.ch?domain=ashteq.ca&type=A

3. ashteq.ca.  A  192.168.15.2 [TTL=600]

You can't use IP 192.168.15.2 for NS and A record for your site so please delete it from the DNS .

4. could you please provide me the Ping result of site 'ashteq.ca' from your local system

go to commmand line and type

Your another site is working fine because it is point to the correct A record and it is point to only one server see the following dns result.

But site ashteq.ca

Your nameservers do appear to be in a bit of a mess - they are doing recursive lookups which may be the root of the problem.

http://www.dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=ashteq.ca 

will give you the dirty details......

I suspect that the passwords were changed due to a major reconfiguration of your network, its possible this is the time that they ended up the way they are...
