    There must be a setting someplace that I just can't seem to find to cause the footer file I've specified in the IIS properties for the site to be attached to the aspx pages as well as the htm/html pages. Can someone point out where/what I need to change to get the footer to appear on ALL pages served for a given website. -Larry
  • 3. Unable to Change Password via OWA 2003
    Hi My users are unable to change their password via OWA 2003 from the internet. They get the following error. Error Code: 403 Forbidden. The server denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). Contact the server administrator. (12202) When connecting to OWA 2003 from the local LAN they can change there password OK. To connect via the internet we are useing ISA Server 2004. I am not sure if the problem lies with the ISA server or IIS server. We use Exchange 2003 SP1 installed on Windows server 2003 SP1 and have a Windows 2003 Domain. Thanks in advance for any help offered. Kevan

Hi to all,

Is it necessary for the ANONYMOUS system user to have access from the  
network on a
Win2k server running IIS5 that allows IUSR_host connections on a public  

Are these the same user?

And not running IIS5? is it the same scenario?

Thank you,

I had trouble with your message but from what you say I take it to be:

You want an IIS 5 (Windows 2000 Server) to get access to resources on your 

If so you should create an account in your domain and configure IIS to use 
that account for the web site.

On IIS6 it is similar but you would create a new IIS Application pool and 
change it identity to the user account from your domain.


Create Service Account in domain called "svcacct-IIS" and give it a 
Assign it to the web site on IIS 5 as the anonymous user account by editing 
the directory security.

If running on IIS 6 then you would also add the domain account to the 
following group on the IIS 6 box.   "IIS_WPG"

Hope this helps if not please rephrase your question and post back....

1.IUSER and Anonymous user

I have a Classic ASP application that gives permissions based on the NT user, so I can't allow anonymous. I want to save files off to another server, but the IUSER account can't do that.

If I was anonymous, I could substitute a username and it would work.

How can I require a NT logon and still allow the application to save files to another server?

2.anonymous user account name

I often have permission problems when I move my pages unto different servers.
It would be very handy if I could programmatically determine the anonymous 
user account name from my asp page.
How can this be done since it is not in the request header for anonymous

a fix for that. I had the exact same problem I called MS opened a ticket was

5.Current Anonymous Users Growing and Growning

We have a public website running on IIS 5.0 and use 
Current Anonymous Users counter in the Windows 
Performance Monitor to view how many current users are 
viewing the site. 

We can usually expect to see an average reading of 350 
users on the system, but recently noticed the number of 
users is 2400. Due to the nature of the website, the 
amount of users on the site usually drops to around 5-10 
out of office hours, but still our reading is showing the 
figure of 2400 currently on the system.

Can anyone explain this?

Many thanks.
