When users visit my sharepoint site externally, they are asked to login with the standard internet prompt to enter credentials.

How can I set sharepoint so that login isn't required but they can still click the top right hand corner and sign in as a different user for elevated privileges?

Please note that anonymous SharePoint access does require the External Connector license (just as your IIS server did!) to legally serve content anonymously.

That explains a lot. The solution by Jamie is perfect but the reason why I'm prompted to login is because of the lack of an EC license.

Thank you.
