    Hi all,

    I have locked our 2003 SP1 server down using the security configuration
    wizard and group policy, now for the fun to begin: ever since I have
    completed this process, we can no longer write to the guest books. The
    content is there, but when we type a few words, then click on "Submit
    Comments" I receive the "FrontPage Error.
    User: please report details to this site's webmaster.
    Webmaster: please see the server's application event log for more details."

    I believe this is primarily an IIS security misconfiguration on my part, but
    I am cautious when changing the iIS security settings because I do not want
    to make them weak. Does anyone know what the minimum secutiys settings
    should be to allow ananymous users to sign a guest book?
