    Localhost Prompt for UN/PW in Browser -- no account works


    127.0.0.1 in my browser is prompting for a username/password. I've googled this and read posts on this on several forums, but none of their solutions are working for me.

    Running on XP SP3, IIS 5.1.

    In IIS, I've gone to website>properties>directory security> edit Anonymous access and authentication controls. "Anonymous Access" is checked. "Allow IIS to control password" is checked. The username is "IUSR_computername". At the browser prompt, I've tried several combinations, including just leaving UN and PW blank. But the prompt isn't accepting anything.

    What am I missing? Thanks for you help.

    I don't know the answer, sorry. Hopefully you found the answer already, or perhaps someone who's familiar with IIS permissions will jump in.
