Enter without authentication ? Any possibility ?

  Asked By: Sade    Date: Mar 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 853

Is there anyway that we can go into a portal site without entering the
username and password.i.e we want some content to be available for all users and
so we just want them to access our portal from outside just by typing our URL.Is
there a way to do it.Also pls tell me how to put a login or logout button pls.

If you set your website in IIS to allow anonymous access, this is the effect
you get. They'll be a Sign in button  for users  to click on and they can
enter their information. For users inside the domain, they'll be
automatically logged on.

Note however that running this for SharePoint Portal Server is unsupported
(not sure about standalone WSS, but I think it's okay).

Once you enable anonymous, then you can go into the admin settings to grant
permission for anonymous users view access.
