    Facing trouble with IIS 6.0, any help will be appreciable

    While accessing:smpwservicescgi.exe, it gets diverted to another .asp page, but gives following errors on the page:

    "You are not authorized to view this page

    You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied

    HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied"

    I am having IIS 6 on windows 2003, on one of the environment, but worked fine in other two environment with iis5.0.

    Trouble shooting till now: 

    1) enabled directory browsing on the virtual folder of the web site, on both the virtual folder where .exe & .asp pages are located.

    2) Verified NTFS & IIS permissions, on both the place where .exe & .asp pages are located.

    3) On IIS front tried with anonymous access & also provided with the integrated windows authentication, on both the virtual folder where .exe & .asp pages are located

    4) tried checking other post on the site, could not get much help.

    Let me know if anything else which i can give it a try to rectify this trouble.

    Thanks for the help.
