Prompt for login even IIS anonymous access is enabled RRS feed

  • Question

  • I setup a MOSS 2007 site and I would like to assign a user login as a public shared account. Thus I have configure a domain user (e.g. DOMAIN\share_acct) in IIS anonymous access. Thus every one access Sharepoint will default login as  the SHARE ACCT.

    However when I complete the configuration, it still keeps for prompting me login box even anonymous access is set. I have tested many time to ensure DOMAIN\share_acct's password input correctly under IIS anonymous access. And I also verified that DOMAIN\share_acct have the access rights to Sharepoint (when the login prompt, I use DOMAIN\share_acct to login and able to access)

    I really have no idea on how to troubleshoot for this. Anyone can advice for troubleshoot? Thanks.

  • What is your requirment ? do you need everyone should be access to the sharepoint anonymously ?
    Please check if you have anonymous access enabled in your web application level.
