User permissions on IIS (was: Something's wrong...)

Rootwitch has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have a Win2k box and IIS5, and I have installed ActiveState. I installed a guestbook but whenever I try to access it, I get a Windows network login screen. I have set the IUSR permission properly on the cgi-bin folder, and likewise in IIS I have associated .pl files with c:\perl\perlis.dll. Anyone know why I'm getting this login screen? Thanks in advance.

    you need to set the Authentication mode to "Anonymous Access" in IIS. if the authentication is set to Basic Authentication, the web page will expect a user name and password, and if the authentication level is set to "Integrated Windows Authentication " , then the network id and password is expected... hth :)

    Have you checked the directory for any .htaccess files? I believe IIS does have some support for authentication via .htaccess and .htpasswd. On the other hand I don't think the solution is going to be perl related. :-(
