You're likely running into this loopback check issue when browsing locally:
I would recommend disabling it via method #2 decribed in that KB article.

When you say you give valid username/password, is it a windows user account?
Does the account have permission on website folder. Check login with administrator account.
In IIS manager you can configure application pool to use Network Service identity and add Network service permission on website home folder.
