Website Access

We have a website that contains an application.  As it stands now the only people who can access the website are domain admins.  We have a Windows 2008 R2 domain and the web server is 2008 R2 running IIS 7.5.  The website does have Anonymous Access enabled and set to Specific user:  IUSR.  When any domain admin goes to the website it comes right up.  If any other user tries to go to the website IE claims it cannot find it.  What permissions do I need to add or change so that other users can bring up the website and use the web application?

Try to check NTFS permissions to the folder with site content (by default - \inetpub\wwwroot).
IIS_USRS must have Read & execute permissions:

Hi,

Is the application accessing any data from another server over the network?

Also can you switched your IE settings to Friendly message so as to get the clue of what the error is?

In addition to giveandtake638's suggestion, try using a client that returns the actual response, or lack of one.  For example, Firefox with Firebug, or even wget.

This sounds like the client may be having trouble resolving the server.  Have you checked for that level of availability?

BrianSDG,

What fixed the problem? And what did you actually use to determine the problem? I'm a student in a computer networking course and I was reading through the possible solutions and the various methods of determining how to obtain more info on the error.

Thanks,
