Major problem with anonymous access

  Asked By: Mitchell    Date: Jul 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1450

I have discovered a major problem with anonymous access in SharePoint
Portal Server v2.

When I turned on anonymous access to my portal site, I lost the "Site
Settings" link on the site. I can still get into the administrator
interface but I cannot do certain things. One thing I cannot do is post
listings. I also cannot get back into the manage anonymous access
screen. It says access denied. I am a local administrator, site
administrator, and I have set the site in IIS back to no anonymous

I am on a Windows 2000 client.

Has anyone else experienced this?

You need to create another virtual server, then extend and map that VS
to your anonymous  portal. Don't enable anonymous access  on the new VS
and from there, you should have Admin access to the portal.
