Anonymous Access Rights

  Asked By: Mrigendra    Date: Nov 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1540

In my site I want to have three groups: reader, guest and admin. Admin

rights. I want to give anonymous access to all except a few (i.e. the
admin group). Also I don't want to have a separate virtual server for
the same.

Please help on how to do this?

enable guest access  for these users on the portal?

Also that article points to anonymous  access for WSS. But how do I enable the
same for SPS 2003?

Is that you are talking about when other people from
outside view your side , what permission to grant them
is it ? Because we dont know who is going to view our
site , so how can we grant access  to those people who
we dont know. rite ?

I want to grant them reader  rights.
Since we do not know who is going to visit our site  and it's not
possible to add all the users on the portal. Therefore I wanted to know
how do I enable
guest access  for these users on the portal?
