I hate security. There should be a set of geeks that handle security in applications and then programmers could focus more of their efforts on writing code and not d****** around with security. After wasting 4 hours with this I will see if someone else
can solve this problem.
I want to open up my web site to all users, then I'm going to start adding security to specific folders/pages. I've taken off every security measure I can find and I still get prompted with a windows login when I navigate to my website.
I set anonymous authentication allowed in IIS. I set authentication to None in IIS (actually I did these in GoDaddy's control panel). Then I set the code below in web.config, but I still get prompted for a login. Why? Where is security hiding? This code
is under the system.web node in web config:

I found the answer I was searching for when I contacted GoDaddy help desk. They pointed out that I had to set the permissions on all of the folders and files to allow the anonymous user. It's things like that which caused me to hate dealing with security.
I know we need it, but I want someone else to administer it so I can get back to programming.
