IIS authentication problem with "Network Service"..
Posted on 2006-11-22
Hi, i have the following setup:
IIS 6.0 on W2K3.
A .NET 2.0 app.
A site with IUSR as anonymous access acount, running in the default app pool.
A sub folder "admin" in this site that has only the access config changed from the parent, using integrated win auth/digest domain auth with the domain in realm. No anonymous access..
I thought this would feed the users domain username to the app, but not so.. The app recieves all requests from the "NETWORK SERVICE"..
I guess this have to do something with the default app pool, and/or the auth methods used.. but i cant find any specifics on this on the web.. Anyone got an idea?
What this should work like is that all users/guest should be anonymous at the root, but the admin folder should require authentication through the domain. The users get the login box as intended now, but is still authenticated as "NETWORK SERVICE"..
