Permisions

I can't get IIS persmisions for controling publishing to work. I managed to get it to make front page ask for a user name and password but when I type the username and password of my servers admin account it won't accept it. The admin account has been added to both admin and author groups. I'm using XP, the server is a dedicated one and I'm publishing over a LAN to simulate users publishing to the server. It's good that it won't let anyone publish now, and since I control the server I don't need to publish but I want to be able to give others online access to for authoring. Thanks in advanced, Matt.

    IIS permissions are controlled by the properties of the virtual directory. Start the IIS admin snap-in in the MMC. Find your website then right-click on and select Properties then select Virtual Directory. Then see if you changing Read or Write permissions solves the problem or not.
