I have one WSS 3.0 site hosted on a standalone server. I have extended the site into an external zone that authenticates with Digest authentication. This has been working fine for the past year or so. We have been looking into changing the user account naming
scheme for Active Directory, and have been testing the change out on my own account. In doing so, I am still able to access our Sharepoint site from the Intranet zone on our internal network, but not from the external web address. I have tried removing my
account from the site collection, and even going into the WSS_Content.AllUserData SQL table and changing the account name from DOMAIN\OldUserName to DOMAIN\NewUserName. No matter what I have tried, I get "HTTP Error 401.1 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due
to invalid credentials. Internet Information Services (IIS)" when I try to log in with any username.
