Hi,
I have an installation of SP2007 and created a corporate portal web app and site collection as well as a SSP. When I set up both of these I used a domain\administrator account and once they were created a log in pop-up appears and when I enter in the correct credentials a couple of time the page goes to a "You are not authorized to view this page" page. These web apps have been created using a host header and I believe a problem is somewhere there. If I create a webapp/sitecollection without using a host header I can access the websites no problem. Does anyone know where the issue could be?

Thank you.

are you trying to access them from the server you created them on? there was an ie update that caused this. try accessing from a workstation.

that is correct. you would need an alternate access mapping with a internal name. something like intranet or sp or sales. you may also need to create host records in your interal dns.
