Can only connect using WINS

  Asked By: Palash    Date: Apr 30    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1078

When using a browser to connect to the sharepoint server i can only connect
using the servername of the server.

If i try to connect using the IP address or the fully qualified domain name
instead it comes up with an error:

You are not authorized to view this page
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the
credentials you supplied.

This error is with default integrated authentication. If i set Basic or
Anonymous authentication then the it times out on the script and i get a HTTP
500 internal server error.

Has anyone seen this before and know how i can fix this?

Also another question probably more IIS related...Can i have some people logging
in anonymously and make others use Integrated authentication? maybe via IP
address if it needs something to differentiate the users on.

Check you hostheader information on the webserver.
The extranet whitepaper (available on the Microsoft website) explains how to
set up the host-header names correctly.
