Default Accessing network files from IIS PC

I am running a simple web site on my local PC. It is a simple
ASP.NET site running on my PC under IIS.

I have a networked file server with a large Access database on it.

One of my web pages needs to read a table from the Access db on
the file server. I keep getting told that I do not have permission
to do this. Should I set up access permissions on the file server
for a specific 'remote IIS ASP user'. My own user account has
full permissions on the server. But when I run the website - it is
as if the IIS/ASP does not have the required read permissions.

Any ideas?

You need to give the ASPNET user account on the server read permissions and if it writes to the DB you need to give write permissions to the folder that contains the access DB.
