    Default Error 403 - Forbidden

    Hi all<BR><BR>Just got a new laptop running XP Professional and have installed IIS 5.1. All appears fine except when i try to access http://localhost/ then in IE I get a 403 error and in Firefox a prompt asking me to &#039;enter username and password for "" at http://localhost/&#039;.<BR><BR>Tried reinstalling but same problem. Anybody come across this before? I did a search on MS KB but found nothing.<BR><BR>Thanks

    first up, firefox does not support integrated authentication, so you should probably switch that off and enable anonymous access.<BR><BR>secondly, you need to make sure you have NTFS permissions on the web files for the IUSR account and/or any other account which needs to access them via IIS.<BR><BR>j<BR>
