Am new to SharePoint, Am not a SP developer, i do only administration. My question is very simple and straight regarding configuring a SP application in SP2010.
I created a default application with port 1234 and restored the WSP and content db, and the application is loading internally(inside the server)without any issues after entering the username and password.
To access the application externally from internet, I extended the same application with "Allow Anonymous access" and entered the domain in host header and selected Internet zone, hence extended site is created in IIS, but when i load the application in internet it is STILL prompting for username/password, once i enter the credentials the site is loading with ribbon on top.
Expected Result: To access the application externally in internet without providing username/password/ribbon.
NOTE: If i DISABLE Windows Authentication in IIS Authentication for the extended site, the application is not even prompting for the username/password and throws 401 UNAUTHORIZED error, will this help to narrow down the error?
Am really not sure what am missing here, I followed this article, but i couldn't view the anonymous access button as mentioned in 8th point.
Thanks in advance, Hudson
