Hi all,

New to BE . I have set it up as a non-public internal Blog, works fine. I have a request now that anonymous access to the default.aspx page in BE be disabled, and that users must enter in their domain userid/password to even get to the main page, they can they login to BE in the usual way. This is in IIS 6/Win 2003 btw. I have disabled anonymous access and added Integrated Windows Auth and basic auth (and various combinations of the two), and set the default domain. Users now are challenged with a login prompt, but only someone in the Administrators group on the server is able to login. All others get multiple prompts then a 401.3 error about access permissions and ACLs. I have tried setting user permissions (including even FULL) to BlogEngine.Web folder, and even the entire BlogEngine folder, with no luck.

I am kind of stuck .. can anyone help?
