Unable to open companyweb in SBS2003 R2
Posted on 2007-03-19
I have recently completed a fresh install of SBS2003 R2 accepting the setup defaults for a standard install.
Everything is OK except I can't access the intranet or companywebsite. ( Note that this is just the standard, unaltered site that comes as standard with SBS). When I load IE, I get a request to authorize the user. If I input admin's credentials I get nothing (the password screen just comes back...it looks like nothing changes). If I enter a user's credentials same thing. I had assumed that changing the permissions for the website might resolve thge problem, so I gave full permission to "everyone" and "users".
I was wrong. Now when I try to browse to the intranet, I get a dialogue that gives me the choice of "Find", "Save" or "cancel" the website and it won't simply open it.
What the hell have I done? I'd guess the problem was a bit easier to resolve before I changed stuff but now what?
I had heard that the problem could be related to .net 2.0 or Sharepoint.
Anybody have the same problem? Any idea what to do?
