Serving an InfoPath File from IIS6

  Asked By: Gustavo    Date: Nov 04    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 847

This is not exactly a SharePoint question but I thought this group
may very well know the answer anyway. We have placed some .xsn
files out on our intranet running IIS6 and when users click on them
to download those files they are prompted for authentication. They
should already have access to these files... is there anything
unique about these files? I as administrator on the server can pull
them up just fine. Also does anyone know what the MIME Type should
be for InfoPath files listed in IIS?

Only 2 things I can think of that would cause the auth prompt - either there is
authentication required for the URL (and the admin is being automatically
authenticated), or the InfoPath files  themselves include something that requires
authentication - like a database or http connection in an embedded script.

We uninstalled Front Page Server Extensions 2002 from the IIS box
and all is well now...
