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.

    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. :-(

    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 :)
