Default IIS wont let anyone view without a password

I have IIS setup on my Server 2000 machine. If I go the main page locally(192.168.0.1) everything goes fine. But if someone tries to view the page, they have to log in.

How can I stop from this happening? I want the site to be public.

I normally work with apache but in IIS there should be an option under directory security for 'allow anonomous login' and a box for a username and password. Tick that and untick 'integrate windows authentication' and that should do it

You need to right click the virtual web server on the iis manager, then clcik directory security, ad there you can change your authenticaion settings.

I am sure this what u are looking for

If it still does not work, restart the IIS services , as i kno one of my clients had this problem before on one of their intranet portals where a admin was tryin to set up SSL on there.

I would realy recomend upgrading to windows 2003 and IIS6 as IIS5 is not worth the stress, as it is too slow and cumborsome in my opinion, but i suppose it does geh the job done
