We are using the CMS functionality in MOSS 2007 to create a new web site for a client and have created a server farm. We have wrapped up development, added content, tested the site and we're ready to turn on anonymous access for the WFE. We've done this in the past with no issues. On this specific farm we went through the normal steps for configuring the access (see http://www.ararat.org.il/sharepoint-server-2007-anonymous-access-howto
We are currently still getting prompted for credentials when accessing the site through both the IP or domain. We've tried unchecking the setting and trying to reapply anonymous through MOSS with no success.
We have a case open with Microsoft but the process is moving along very slow. So far we've confirmed that there's nothing in the code of the page that's is causing the prompts. We did this by accessing a .gif file directly inside a site page and still getting the prompt.
- We have tested in both browsers (IE 7 and Firefox) and specifically use Firefox to avoid any IE security or session features.
- We haven't yet been able to test this from a public domain and have had to try and test the page from inside the clients network.
- We've dropped some sample pages/files into another MOSS Farm with anonymous access and we're not receiving any prompts for credentials.
- Microsoft had us create a test site in MOSS in the web farm (publishing site) and we've been able to set anonymous access and test it successfully.
I was curious if anyone has seen a similar issue when apply anonymous access to MOSS on a web farm.
