    Hi All,

    New Install of Win 2k3 and IIS but the Virtual Directory I have created under the Default Web Site doesn't seem to work. I get the "You are not authorized to view this page" message in the browser on all the machines that use this server.

    This server uses anonymous logins via the IUSR_SERVERNAME account to access the web pages. I've made sure Access is granted (IP's, Permissions, and IUSR password) in all possible places but still no joy.

    This is driving me spare. I'm sure it must be a common problem but I'm damned if I can find where the permissions are wrong.

    I'm off home now, weekend at last. Back Monday.

    Troublegum - :)

    Did you allow read/write permissions? That's all I got.

    I believe the virtual directories inherit the file system security if it is outside of the wwwroot root. I would check the permissions on the folder you set up as a virtual directory and make sure it has the IUSR account allowed for anonymous access.

    I've installed the IISDIAG. It's very good and shows lots of config issues which is a bit odd seeing this is a brand new build of 2k3 and IIS. I didn't do anything strange with it so I would expect it to configure itself properly. Bl00dy microsoft products.

    Anyway. I'll go through what IISDIAG says and see where that gets me.

    Thanks
