In IIS 5 if I set a default document to any .shtml file, I am prompted for login information when I access the site. If I enter the file name blahblah.shtml, that is set as the default document, in the URL then the shtml page loads fine. If I set the default doc to say default.HTM I have no problems and no login request. <BR><BR>I find it strange that no login request appears at all when I use yet if I set blah.shtml as the default document I get a login prompt.<BR><BR>Can anyone help me out with this one, I have been trying for close to a week now to get this figured out.
