Hi All,
I am new to SharePoint. I have just created a simple intranet site along with its site collection.
I entered the username and password in the configurable section.
But after creating the site collection when i try to open the site it is prompting for the username and password. Entering which i am getting the error.....you are not authorized to view this page.
I tried several times but getting the same result.
Please help!
Thanks,
Rohit.

Normally, SharePoint will attempt to automatically detect your credentials and log you in without prompting for a password.  

Try this:
Can you browse and login to the site from another (non-server) machine?
If so, this may be a known issue with loopback security.  You can read more about that here:

If you are getting the same problem on every machine, you should verify that your account does have access to the site collection.  It's actually a common mistake to assume that the Farm Administrator (you) will automatically have access to a site collection.  When you create a new site collection, initially only the Site Collection Administrators will have access to it; they then grant access to users and groups.  

If you want to make sure you are in the Site Collection Administrators group for this site collection, do this:
In Central Administration, go to Application Management--> SharePoint Site Management--> Site Collection Administrators.  In the top right of the page, ensure you have selected the correct site collection.  Then make sure you are in the "Primary" or "Secondary" site collection administrator field.  

Note that AD groups cannot be assigned to the SCA role.  It has to be individuals.
