Continuously receiving an HTTP 401.3 error on images (localhost)
Posted on 2006-11-15
I'm running IIS 5.1 on XP Pro sp2 - everything is running on local host. I'm logged in as a local admin with the IIS service running under a local system account. Everything is running under the default website with all access on the Home Directory enabled. I also have Anonymous access enabled - it's as wide open as you can get.
When I create images (using Fireworks MX), 99% of the time I cannot view the image when I drop it into the site - I just get a 401.3 error. I can get it to work most of the time by a weird combination of recreating the files, copying them from one spot to another, sometimes restarting the service. I've never had to adjust directory permissions to get it to work - so I don't think that the problem lies there.
I've got an image that this is happening with right now and the normal "fix" is not working, so would love to test some things out.
This has been an ongoing annoyance for me and I'd like to know if anyone else has run into the problem and can offer any assistance.
Thanks in advance...
