    Could you check the people who all have permission to the hosted website folder?

    I guess you are the only one who have permissions to read this folder. Is it?

    Try to change AppPool Identity to Network Service...

    Shiva, I just changed the application AppPool Identity to Network Service, and it worked! Since I'm new to IIS 7.5, can someone tell me why this works?

    Thanks!

    Hi Matt,

    Could you tell which account was used before changing it to Network Service?

    I believe you have used custom account which is yours and so by default you are the only one to access the site.

    When you have changed the AppPool identity to NetworkService by default this will have access to network and there by able to authenticate other users as well.

    Hope the above content helps you...

    Regards,

    Siva.
