First of all, I'm a newbie, so forgive me. I'm running IIS 5.1 on Windows XP Pro and I'm just trying to do something really simple.
I'm just trying to test out loading a page on from my local computer, http://localhost/localstart.asp". When I run this local address on Firefox, it loads the page fine without any username/password authentication box.
But when I run this in IE 7, a username/password authentican prompt always appears. I'm trying to get rid of this prompt, so I can load the page without typing in any username/password.
And even when I enter the username and password in the authentication prompt, it still cannot log me in or give me access to the page.
THINGS I HAVE TRIED:
1. Enabling Anonymous access and allowing IIS to control password.
2. Enabling Anonymous access NOT allowing IIS to control password.
3. Disabling Anonymous access, but enabling Integrated Windows authentication.
I really need to get this fixed. Please advise. Thanks!
