Response to: can not login in unsecured zone

I had this same question, and I've now found the answer. In web.Config at the moment you will have something like:-


<system.web>
<authentication mode="Forms" >
<forms
name="MyApp"
path="/"
loginUrl="Logon.aspx"
protection="All"
timeout="20">
</forms>
</authentication>
</system.web>


You will need to add after the </system.web> something like this:-


<location path="Public">
<system.web>
<authorization>
<allow users="*"/>
</authorization>
</system.web>
</location>


This will allow anyone (authorised or not authorised) to access the pages in the "Public" directory.
