    IIS configuration


    I am now using IIS 5.0 using windows 2000 server.
    Using IIS I made a website beside the default web site.
    I configured IIS for my website by going into the properties of my website.
    Now when I type in http://my_ip_adress (

    First thing that happens is that a log in window pops up, asking for password
    and user name, and domain.

    When I type in my OS, usernamer and passoword, and for domain I type in my
    domain (mydomain.com) tha I registered. I get this error
    "page can not be displayed, can find server or DNS).

    Can anyone tell me where I made the mistake.

    Did you set up a virtual directory for the site? If so, there is a permissions wizard in the IIS service manager that may help get permissions set properly.

    A popup authentication box normally indicates the web server user account doesn't have permission to access the file or folder requested.
