    Keep in mind that all processes running on an NT machine must run under a valid NT Account. IIS is no different.<BR><BR>If IIS uses Anonymous Authentication, then IIS will impersonate the default NT Account for IIS (usually "IUSR_machinename"). The "IUSR_Machinename" is a local Account, by default, that only has permissions to access local resources as allowed by NTFS permissions. The "IUSR_Machinename" will not have permission to access resources on other servers on the network. hence, your virtual directory on a different server can not be READ, because IIS ("IUSR_machinename") doesn&#039t have NTFS permissions to read the directory on the other machine.<BR><BR>Check out the following for work arounds:<BR><BR><BR><BR>
