I am working on the internet sites on sharepoint and was hosted , but one
thing we have done lost of coding (customisation ) through VS2005 as per the
client reqirement . i had struck with one thing that is AllowAnonymous Acces
for the web in the site permissions . How can set the AllowAnonymous to be true
by using Objectmodel . as i seen it it is redirected to setanon.aspx page . but
i dont want any redirection to the page . as i m creating the Spwebs using
VS2005 while creating the SPweb i want the Allowanonymous acces to be true .

Please tell me if there any answer

Here is the code

// For Enabling Anonymous Access at Webapplication level that you
configure from CA
SPWebApplication webApp = SPWebApplication.Lookup(new
SPIisSettings iis =
iis.AllowAnonymous = true;
Assembly asm = Assembly.Load(@"Microsoft.SharePoint,
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c");
Type t =
MethodInfo mi = t.GetMethod("UpdateAuthenticationSettings",
BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.NonPublic,
null, new Type[] { typeof(SPUrlZone), typeof(SPIisSettings)
}, null);
mi.Invoke(webApp, new object[] { SPUrlZone.Default, iis });

// for enabling site  level anonymous access that we enable from
SPSite sc = new SPSite("http://sharepoint2007");
SPWeb site = sc.RootWeb;
site.AnonymousState = SPWeb.WebAnonymousState.On;

It was good expericene working  on your problem

Tip: To find the class and methods you need to work on is to open the Sharepoint
Application pages like setanon.aspx,
then get the assembly name where code-behind sitting. Then you can open that
assembly in any disassembler
that gives you hint that how sharepoint  itself is performing that operation
