What browser are you using? Maybe your site is not configured for anonymous access. Then IE may log you on automatically while Firefox or other browsers don't....

In that case, your IIS account (IUSR_MachineName) may not have permissions to read the files in your web site's root.

Check out this FAQ for more details: http://imar.spaanjaars.com/QuickDocId.aspx?QUICKDOC=290

Hi !

Sorry for the double post Imar, back to where I started, I apologize for my dumbness There are two things I didn't understand:

First I read through your guide, but I don't know which folder I am targeting here to change its security settings. I am a complete noob at this and right now I am just following the book. I haven't changed anything after IIS installation so which folder should I target for security change.

Second I don't have the security option and I followed your steps on running explorer in the run prompt and opening tools and view but I didn't see an option for "use simple file sharing".

What OS are you using? Windows XP? If so, what version?

The sharing option should be there, if you're using Windows XP. Are you sure you used a Windows Explorer and not Internet Explorer?

The folder you need to configure is most likely C:\inetpub\wwwroot as that is the default for IIS. To find out for sure, click Start and then run and enter Inetmgr. In the IIS management console, expand nodes until you see your web site. Right-click it and choose Properties. On the Home Directory tab look in the Local Path box to see what folder is being used.

If all this doesn't help, I think you'll need to post more specific information about your OS, setup and configuration.

HtH,

Imar

hi !

Thanks for the quick reply, yes I am using win XP, nad it was windows explorer. The folder I have to set is the wwwroot folder which is in C:/Inetpub/wwwroot. Thanks for clearing that up.

Now When I right click and go to properties I do get an option saying sharing, but there is no option security. In the sharing option I have a few choices:

1: local sharing and security
2: network sharing and security

Sharing is not what you're after here, you need to change the Security settings.
Try this:

1. Open a Windows Explorer
2. Right-click your C-Drive (in the root) and choose Properties.
3. What is your File System? (You can see it listed on the General tab)

And what version of Windows XP do you have?

Hi !

My C drive is NTFS not FAT so thats fine but I have to admit something I am running windows XP home edition, I managed to rig one of the files in the INF folder and get some files from windows 2000 pro and expand them and add them to the required folder and I got IIS in control panel and I installed it.

Does that have to do something with security

Oh definitely. IIS is not supported on Windows XP Home edition, so it's likely you run into all kinds of problems.

I have never installed IIS on Home, so I don't know what other issues you encounter, but there are a couple of walkthroughs available if you search Google. Maybe those can shed some light....
