We have read-only content which is basically on network share. I'd like to be able to display it in my sharepoint site and be able to access it without sharepoint as well, so I created virtual directory under IIS which maps to my content.
The problem is that when I access it like http://sp1/myContent, it says Access Denied. And when I'm logged off, it tries to authenticate me. I have anonymous access activated on my site and I have no clue how to skip this.
I found this in my ProcMon log:
12:57:26,7875600 w3wp.exe 7940 CreateFile \\VAP1\FTP\ ACCESS DENIED Desired Access: Generic Read, Disposition: Open, Options: Sequential Access, Attributes: RE, ShareMode: Read, Write, Delete, AllocationSize: n/a, Impersonating: NT AUTHORITY\IUSR DOMAIN\spcontent
So maybe it's due the fact that it tries to connect as IUSR?
