Create a public facing SharePoint website using Windows Server 2008 Standard edition and not be prompted for username and password to view the site
Posted on 2008-11-06
Can I create a public facing website (any one can browse to www.mysite.com) using Windows Server 2008 and its built in SharePoint Services and not get prompted to just browse the site?
i have created the website as a sub site of the "companyweb" website already built into SBS2008 and would like to publish this sub site so that to anyone can browse it. Currently when one browses to the site they are prompted for a username and password even though i have selected the allow company visitors option as the sites security group. I am very ignorant on SharePoint and this is just a charity project so Im not desperate, but I do need some step by step guidance as I have a big headache right now !
1. My goals are to create a site in Windows Server 2008 using SharePoint (built into the server) -- Done
2. Publish that site so that guests can browse it without authentication FAILED
