If you look at the guide that you were using it says:
To deploy the Web site to the SharePoint layouts folder
Modify the contents of theWeb.config file of ASP.NET Web site and comment out the <authentication> section. For example:
 
 Copy Code
<!-- <authentication mode="Windows"/> -->
Save the modified Web.config file.

Open in new window
