    XP or Vista? IIS 6 or 7?

    Are you using your machine just a a dev machine to write the code, and then uploading it to a server elsewhere to actually run etc.? [I'm presuming yes, as you're using the Windows installer rather than doing it the more complicated way Stick out tongue [:P]]

    If so, you don't need to enter anything for the smtp server, unless you actually need to use the mail function on your PC.....

I get a promp for the user name and pass word but to no avail. i enter my user name and it includes the computer name along with it It then display that I dont have permission to view with the error being the IIS

    What am I doing wrong here? If not using the correct username and password - where to I navigate to find these two?
