I have been developing a site in a development folder which is behind a IIS prompt window.
I need to disable the prompt but its not working for me as when I do (incorectly) I get a
'You are not authorized to view this page'
I have other folders without prompts and cant see whats different between them. Is there simple proceedure I should follow to enable/disable an IIS prompt for a site?
Thanks for any help

Do you want to 1) allow anonymous access or 2) authenticate but just suppress the prompt?
if 1, then make sure you allow anonymous in the IIC MMC for that folder and make sure IUSR_yourservername has NTFS read permissions to the folder and files.
if 2, then make sure IE is configured correctly.
