IIS 7 and Above
Anonymous Authentication issues

I am trying to host a website on a Windows 2008 Web Server. I don't have a lot of experience with IIS but I did not seem to have this many issues hosting a site on IIS 6.
When I try and connect to the site from inside the network it works fine. When I try and connect to it outside of the network I have a lot of issues but the only one I am concerned with right now is that while I have anonymous authentication enabled it still
asks for the user to log in. And even if I do using an admin account I still get access denied.
Anyone else have this issue? I have enabled a user account and gave it read/execute rights to the folder. I gave the account local access and access over the network. Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Does this happen to every page that you try to access .. or is it only for a few pages ...
What do you have in the IIS logs... 401.1 or something else.???

I get the 401.1 error if I hit cancel and a 401.3 error if i try and put in a network user and it is talking about Access control lists. The correct ports are open on the firewall... I am just out of ideas at this point.

401.3 is the error that occurs if the user does not have the sufficient ntfs permissions to perform an action. Check if the user has the sufficient rights... Also if possible , uncheck show friendly error messages in IE and then try to run the page and see
if you can com up with something...

As far as I can see the user I created has rights to all the necessary folders.
User created as a network user web-user
Site folder read/execute granted to web-user
I also tried to use a local user name and grant them rights to the folder and still was unsuccessful.
and under Allowed users = everyone.
