How To Allow All Users RRS feed

  • User930584213 posted

    I hate security.  There should be a set of geeks that handle security in applications and then programmers could focus more of their efforts on writing code and not d****** around with security.  After wasting 4 hours with this I will see if someone else can solve this problem.

    I want to open up my web site to all users, then I'm going to start adding security to specific folders/pages.  I've taken off every security measure I can find and I still get prompted with a windows login when I navigate to my website.

    I set anonymous authentication allowed in IIS.  I set authentication to None in IIS (actually I did these in GoDaddy's control panel).  Then I set the code below in web.config, but I still get prompted for a login.  Why?  Where is security hiding? This code is under the system.web node in web config:

        <authentication mode="None" />

        <authorization>

          <allow users="*" />

        </authorization>

    I found the answer I was searching for when I contacted GoDaddy help desk.  They pointed out that I had to set the permissions on all of the folders and files to allow the anonymous user.  It's things like that which caused me to hate dealing with security.  I know we need it, but I want someone else to administer it so I can get back to programming.
