IIS request windows auth from outside access
Here's the setup: I have Windows XP Pro with IIS, Visual Studio 2003. I have some development web applications running. I can run then fine from http://localhost. However, when I attempt to access them from "outside" (i.e. from my public IP address thru my firewall) to test RemoteOnly error functionality, I am forced to provide a windows authentication login. I have checked the following:

- Applicable web.config settings:
    <authentication mode="None" />
        <allow users="*" />

- My file system settings are allowing full access to "everyone" so I am sure that it's not a local file permissions setting.
- I am sure I have not messed with the default IIS settings, but I am unable to access the IIS website node properties (see this thread). If I recall correctly, by default, IIS is set to use windows authentication so it's entirely possible this setting is still in place and is not set to only "Allow anonymous access". Unfortunately, I can't get at the website properties to check it.

Is there something in XP that is configured different from W2K or am I completely off my rocker?

Follow up:

I was able to connect to my XP machine thru the IIS manager on another machine and actually see the web site properties. In there I change the authentication methods under the directory security tab. I unchecked "Digest authentication..." and "Integrated Windows authentication". This gave me the desired result.
