How to turn off windows credentals/passwords being asked when viewing

Posted 17 February 2013 - 11:16 PM

Hi guys, just getting into VB.Net with VS 2012 and created a basic asp.net form pulling data from a SQL database displayed in gridview.

Now this runs fine on my computer but I uploaded it to my webpage that supports .net and as web deploy was turned off (hosting company looking at turning that on) i used the FTP option but when I view the page it asks for a user name and password and I don't want this. Windows Authentication Authentication is off. So must be something else but not sure what? any ideas?

Thanks.

Does the web space folder have a .htaccess file present?

This may be configured through a control panel or may be viewable in the directory.

This type of file password protects a directory and will prompt for user/password.

I have faced the same problem that you got. The solution is

1) In IIS go to you root folder and see the default document and remove all the files except your default file. If your default file is not there you can add it manually using the add option and also make sure you run you page as the start up page.
