What authentication type did you enable on the UNC vdir?
401.1 implies that IIS failed to obtain the user token via LogonUser --
usually due to incorrect username/password. If it's anonymous -- check that
the anonymous account is synchronized between the metabase and SAM/AD.

Forgot to tell, UNC mapping is used to access the share: \\nas01\share\web\root\clientname\html indicating no username nor password, leaving "Always use the authenticated user's credentials when validating access to the network directory." checked. The not password protected area is working well, just the password protected directory is not working (file permissions are the same as the local website) Any ideas? thanks in advance, Augustus >-----Original Message----- >I've setup a Windows 2003 Standard Server as PDC with IIS >and a NAS (Dell PV 725) with Windows Powered 2000 Server. >A simple website (IUSR read-only, client R/W) with a >password protected directory for the website statistics >(no IUSR, client read-only). >This situation hosted locally on the W2K3 IIS Server works >fine, but results in a problem when is situated on the >NAS; the client cannot view the protected directory >through http, username & password are not accepted >resulting in a "HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is >denied due to invalid credentials.
