Re: iis7 and password protecting a web directory
That doesn't quite make sense, this is an error indicating the user doesn't have access but yet in your OP you say anyone can access. Also, this isn't from the IIS log file, and a 401 error will have a sub status code usually of a "1" (typically means a bad username or password was supplied) or a "3" (the user does not have NTFS permissions to the content requested).
Can you paste a snippet of your IIS log file that shows an access attempt? This will tell us the username that was granted access.
