access denied on XP web site from another domain..

I have a development machine that is running Windows XP Pro in a workgroup.

From the machine I can access the web site and everything is OK..I can use http://localhost or http://MachineName, and either will work..

On other machines in the workgroup it works..

On machine is a seperate domain, I can get to the login page (the default.aspx page), but as soon as I log in, the file that is to open fails to open and I get a logon pop up for the Guest account.. if I try to enter a password it still fails and after 3 tries gives me an access denied error..

I have change permission for everyone to have full control of the entire web site and the Web guest account can read and execute the root and all sub directories.

What am I missing ??

Make sure the IUSER account is enabled and active and that the site is enabled to use it.

It sounds like it is the method of authentication that is causing the problem.
Most lilely the security settings in the browser that is not working is not supported.
Check the security settings of the machines that are working and then check the machine that is not.  You might have a windows encryption enabled or something for the login information and the other machine might be using something like Firefox, which does not support it.  It sounds like the anonymous authentication IS working since they can bring up the initial page to get to the login page ... so I believe this is something to do with how the browser is passing the "encoded" login information to the server.

All are using IE to gain access...I checked the settings and they appear to be the same..

The web site I am going to does have authetication on it so it should be ope to that page, then depending on the credentials it will grant access or not..
