IIS 6 and Intranet security for domain users, and outside people

i have a server running Windows 2003 web sp2 and IIS 6.0.

the website running works fine right now, and when an internal user goes to the page http://corporate or http://corporate.xxx.int  it all displays correctly.

i diabled the anonymous access to the pages, and set the configuration as below.  my goal was that if they are going to the page from a domain computer logged in as their domain username (internally, or externally with vpn) then they can get right into the pages.  

however, if someone from a non-domain computer tries to access the site, it will prompt them for a username and password.

now when i try to connect to the server from any domain computer, it always prompts me for a username and password which i don't want it to be doing..

here's what i have for the config / setup.


I created a new application pool called 'corporate blog' with the identity running as a local service.

i created a new website called 'CorporateBlogging' with the following:
*** i have replaced my domain with xxx.int ***

ip:  all unassigned
port: 80
headers:   corporate, corporate.xxx.int

directory security:
- integrated windows authentication
- digest authentication for windows domain servers
realm:  xxx.int

anonymous access is NOT checked.

make sure that the web site is listed in "intranet zone" in IE settings on the client pc.
