Second web server security issue

I am adding a second web server (Web02) to work with the existing Web01 server.  The website for Web02 points to the path for Web01.  When i try to access Web02 via IP address, I get an authentication dialog box (asking for userid/password).  I can't figure out how to give Web02 permissions to the Web01 path.  When I look at permissions on Web01 - I can only see users (such as IUSR_Web01) for the Web01 server and I can't point it to Web02.

You may define remote server path as Home path for website properties Home Dir  tab, choose resource located on remote server.

I have the home path setup on the Web02 IIS configuration to point to the web01/share.  The problem is when I try to access the web02 server by IP address, it asks me for authentication.  When I access web01 by IP address, it does not ask me for authentication.

In Security tab, web02 is pointing to a userid IUSR_DELLSBSR2.  Web01 points to IUSR_WEB01.  I expect that the issue is the IUSR_DELLSBSR2 isn't known  by Web01 (but I can't figure out how to either point Web02 to IUSR_WEB01 or allow Web01 to accept IUSR_DELLSBSR2 as authorized)

Put Everyone Read security on both the Windows share and NTFS file system for Web01/share.

Best of luck,

I put Everyone access on the WEb01 share, the directory, IIS permissions for both Web01 and Web02...but I still get the authentication box.

Anyone else have any ideas?  WEb01 and Web02 are a member of a group.  i can not access Web01's program set from Web02 as it asks for authentication.  

Perhaps the IUSR_DELLSBSR2 user specified in IIS for Web02 doesn't have the right permissions?  How do I even access the permissions for the user (on a non-Active Directory system)?

The key problem was that there were subdirectories in the share which had not inherited the security settings.
