HTTP 401.1 - Unauthorized: Logon Failed - ASP.NET IIS problem

Hi  Experts

Developing ASP.NET 2.0 app that works fine at work and did work fine when I copied it to my home PC.  

But now it still works fine at work but when I copied the files back on my home PC and run the app I get a login screen which I don't get at my work PC.  Then I get the errror "HTTP 401.1 - Unauthorized: Logon Failed"  any advice appreciated.

Looks like it's using Windows authentication and since your authenticated at your work machine (on your network) it passing. Send your Web.Config file.

This is  your problem...

 <authentication mode="Windows"/>
          <authorization>
               <deny users="?"/>
          </authorization>

Basically thi si ssaying deny access to anybody who is not Windows authenticated.

But even if I set authenticatio mode to "None" I still get the login prompt.  I can run other asp.net apps fine its just this one.  Even if I navigate to http://localhost/ I still get the login prompt.  

I will be using my own security via a database table but I also need to trap users logged in NT username.

Dohhh!

You were right ethos - I removed the deny users section and it works fine

<authentication mode="Windows"/>
            <!--<authorization>
                  <deny users="?"/>
            </authorization> -->

Thanks
