Windows 2008 R2 Internet Printing Services

I setup two windows 2008 r2 print servers with internet printing functions. All setup by Default. Server 1 works ok, but not server 2. When I tried to access http://server2/printers it prompts to enter credential. I don't want this happen. On server 1, http://server1/printers will take users directly to the site without asking for credential. Even enter credentail on server 2, it won't work. It's stuck in that windows asking for credentail. I verified IIS Authentication on both servers and they are the same. It has to be something I missed on server 2. I have two questions:

1) To fix server 2 for not asking for credentail when users accessing http://server2/printers
2) How do I modify the text on the web printing site. http://server1/printer will open a site with the message "All Printers on servername", I want to modify that but I don't know what file needs to be edited. I am able to change the picture.

Thanks in advance.

Check permissions on server2. Sounds like either a permissions issue or pass-through authentication is not permitted. Verify that the IIS features installed are the same on both servers. Is anything in the event log?

The files produced to the web page are located in %windir%\web\printers, so if you want to modify the web page, that's where you'll find them.

Thanks, Grantsewell,

server2 is correct. Re-install IIS fixed the problem! still don't know what went wrong at the frist place.
I know where the files are located, I change the picture (logo), need exact location to modify the text or how-to is better
