Mysterious IIS 401’s

Problem: You have configured your web site to e.g. allow anonymous authentication from the IIS Manager Console – but you still get a 401? Please check the possible solutions below.

  1. If you made the change in the IIS Manager Console, please check that the solution web.config does not have a conflicting authentication / authorization setting.
  2. Please verify that you have also authorized anonymous users to the site in the IIS Manager (Authorization Rules)
  3. Desperate? This did not fix it? Try IISRESET aww..
