We are having problems with a web server that is primarily used for internal hosting of an intranet.
IIS 6.0 is installed on a windows XP Pro machine x64 edition Version 2003 Service pack 2
The issue we have is we would like to publish some pages to the internet. This should be straight forward although we are having problems with some of the pages.
We can browse to the default web site by IP address and by FQDN however when we try to browse to a virtual directory of the default site we have problems.
The default web site source is in
The virtual directory source files are in
The Virtual directory has anonymous access disabled and integrated windows authentication as we want to password protect the pages in the virtual directory.
When browsing to this virtual directory internally from another machine we can pick it up fine e.g
And there is no prompting for password
When we browse by IP address
We are prompted for password which is entered before we get the message
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
The same result is obtained if we browse externally using IP address/ virtualdirectory/index.htm
For information we are also looking to make the link SSL secure and have installed a certificate although we have not currently got this requirement ticked under secure communications.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
Many thanks in advance Paul
