Configuring Anonymous Authentication in IIS Server

Anonymous Authentication allows any user to view public content without logging in their credentials. If there is a need to allow users to view content based on supplying their credentials, one could apply a Basic or Digest Authentication. In order to enable Anonymous Authentication in an IIS Server, follow these steps-

  1. On Start, search for Administrative Tools and click it. screenshot-136
