Anonymous access & the ASPNET account
It seems that although I allow anonymous access with an IUSR account in websites on my own Win XP computer, I still need to give directory permissions to the ASPNET account if I try to browse an aspx page on my computer.
The identity that ASP.NET runs with is thoroughly configurable. To get what you want, you need to turn impersonation on in the web.config file; this will cause ASP.NET to use whatever identity IIS supplies, which in the case of anonymous authentication is the IUSR_machine account. Searching on "web.config impersonation" in the help will give you the details.
Thanks for the quick response Mike
