IIS7 Windows Authentication: Pop up boxing requesting credentials, not same behavior as IIS6
Posted on 2010-09-08
In IIS6, we would set a site to use Windows Integrated Authentication and set the proper NTFS permissions on the site's home directory. Users who had correct NTFS permissions could view site and no one else could.
In IIS7, I set the same site (migrated from iis6 to iis7) to use Windows Authentication and set the correct NTFS permissions (atleast what I think is correct) and no matter who the user is, they get a pop up box asking for username/password from the browser. When I go to the site in IIS6, I do not get prompted for credentials and get directed directly to the site (either page for valid users or a custom unauthorized access page for those without access.
What am I missing here? Thanks!
