I have a back end server running sql 2000 and i am trying to set up a front end server for it, using IIS. I setup iis as instructed, but am getting this error when i access the site:

You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Please try the following:

Contact the Web site administrator if you believe you should be able to view this directory or page.
Click the Refresh button to try again with different credentials.
HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.
Internet Information Services (IIS)

 I have gone to microsofts website, but haven't found a solution to the problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Go edit the website properties, and on the Directory Access tab, click the button towards the top for anonymous authentication. Make certain that the username and password specified there is in fact correct, and the account is not disabled or locked out in any way.

    What would be a "correct" username. And where would this account be located.

    The correct user name is the one that is listed there on that tab. The user account itself can be found and modified within Computer Management on your server.
