I have an IIS 6 server (windows 2003 standard) in a workgroup outside our domain. It has a virtual directory connected to a share on a file share on a server (2003 standard) in our domain. I can navigate the directory structure and see the files from within IIS but when I try to browse I get an HTTP 500 error. The log entry follows.
2009-07-20 21:41:13 W3SVC715844336 192.168.1.118 GET /Test - 80 - 192.168.1.118 Mozilla/4.0+(compatible;+MSIE+7.0;+Windows+NT+5.2;+.NET+CLR+1.1.4322;+.NET+CLR+2.0.50727;+.NET+CLR+3.0.4506.2152;+.NET+CLR+3.5.30729) 500 16 1326
Ive set the CONNECT AS to a domain ID, the domain admin and a local user of the server with the share. Same symptoms and error for all. Ive also set the Enable anonymous to these ID under Directory Security.
Ive tried building similar VDs connecting to other servers in the domain with the credentials above and get the same error. I use the IP of the server when creating the VD and directory browsing is enabled. There is no firewall between them and the local firewall on the webserver is off.
My question is what is the difference between IIS and browsing with IE?
