Granting Anonymous Access in a Standalone configuration

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I have installed a standalone sharepoint 2010 server and, for some reason, the "Authentication Providers" button in grayed out.  I have selected the web application; however, no matter what web application I select, the "Authentication Providers" button remains grayed out.  Also, I am listed as an administrator, so, I should have the proper permissions.

With Anonymous access disabled, is there any way to use an AJAX-enabled WCF Service?

I have a website where anonymous access is disabled but I want to user an ajax-enabled WCF service. Configuring the service's binding security to use "TransportCredentialOnly" with clientCredentialType="Windows" seems like the obvious thing to do; indeed, many posts in various places suggest this approach. Unfortunately, however, it doesn't work. I always get the error "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service." How can I configure the service to function correctly. I'm running IIS 7.5 with .Net framework 4.0. Thanks.

Reporting Services 2008 - Anonymous Access

Hello,   In SSRS 2005 I was able to grant anonymous access to my reports by changing the authentication mode for the Reporting Services virtual directory in IIS to Anonymous and then adding the 'account used for anonymous access' to the permissions on the appropriate Reporting Services directories (in report manager).   Now with SSRS 2008 there are no virtual directories in IIS.   I tried to follow the instructions given:   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281310.aspx (Authentication Types in Reporting Services)   Which instructed me to use the custom AuthenticationType, and following the instructions here:   http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281383.aspx (How to: Configure Custom or Forms Authentication in Reporting Services)   which just got me an error: The Authentication Extension threw an unexpected exception or returned a value that is not valid: . (rsAuthenticationExtensionError) Get Online Help For more information about this error navigate to the report server on the local server machine, or enable remote errors   Any ideas on how to set up anonymous access to SSRS2008?   Thanks for any time and help!   -Tim

Anonymous Access to "Event Export" on sharepoint calendar display page

SPDiagnosticsService.Local is null on Win7 standalone configuration

I'm trying to programmatically change various diagnostic logging levels for various categories.  When I try to get the SPDiagnosticsService.Local, it returns null as if I'm not a WFE.  I am wondering if this is because I'm running on a Windows 7 standalone configuration.  Anyone else have this problem?

Anonymous access on Excel Viewer web part for a no access .xslx file?

I have a public facing SharePoint 2010 Enterprise website with anonymous access enabled. I'd like to present information (a pivot chart) from an .xslx file using the Excel Viewer Web Part. It works fine when I place the .xslx file in a document library that the anonymous users can access. I would, however, like to remove anonymous access from the .xslx file and only expose the chart from the .xslx file using the Excel Viewer web part. When I alter the library permissions to remove anonymous access to the library that holds the .xslx file, the Excel Viewer web part displays an "Access Denied" message to the anonymous user. Is there some other way to achieve this?

Anonymous access - User prompted for login after click in web part area

I have a MOSS2010 site, internet-facing using anonymous access. I've found workarounds to many of the anonymous access issues I've come across, but I don't know how to fix this one. Any ideas or assistance would be appreciated. A user visits one of my pages with a OOB webpart. If they click within the area for that web part, essentially selecting the web part, it prompts for a login. I don't want my users getting prompted for a login, but I don't know why they're being prompted in the first place. According to the logs, it looks like it is trying to access _layouts/wpribbon.aspx. They aren't clicking on the items (titles aren't clickable), it's the area within the web part box. Can I make that area non-clickable?? Go to: www.carlile.biz/careers/pages/current-openings.aspx Click on the area around the Locations or the Current Openings listed. Either will prompt for a login. Even with a valid login, the view does not change and no further options are presented.

Anonymous Access & Web Service Errors

Getting errors on all my InfoPath web services now that I've enabled Anonymous Access at the Web Application level -- not on the Site Collection itself (the other Site Collection is Anon enabled). I found this thread in the pre-Sharepoint 2010 forums. http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointinfopath/thread/14d2c1c2-32d4-430b-a191-c01e1ade52fa Does anyone know which parameters or changes I need to make in 2010? Many thanks...

Custom Web Part doesn't work with in anonymous access

Hi there, I have a custom webpart in a farm solution deployed to my site. Anonymous users should be able to view the site, however they can't because they are required to login due to the custom web part. If i remove the webpart from the page, anonymous users can view the site perfectly without the need to login. There is nothing really special about the webpart. It's a visual web part which uses the site and it's web data to display a sort of menu. Any idea? Thx in advance! Brecht

Anonymous access for mobile users


I have set up anonymous access on a sharepoint 2010 publishing site, and that works fine. However, when I try to access the site from a mobile device ( or in a browser with a url of http://server/pages/default.aspx?Mobile=1), I get 401 Unauthorized.

In the IIS log, it's showing a 401 on: /_layouts/mobile/mblwp.aspx

Any suggestions for getting anonymous to work for mobile users?



Automatically Set Anonymous access to subsites off with Parent on and permissions inherited

Is it possible to automatically set anonymous access to all newly created sub sites to be off when the Parent site is on and permissions are inherited? I know it is as simple as going into each site and disabling but to prevent users with forgetful minds we would like the default to be off. I have done a lot of research and do not see a solution. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.

Users can access every new library though Anonymous access id disabled


Hi guys,

I have a really strange stuff going on... I have Anonymous acces disabled on my MOSS portal in Central Administration:

Central Admin->Application Management->Authentication Providers->Default-> Anonymous Access is checked off


So I doesn't even have an option to enable it on any sites of this web application. But when I create a new Document Library all users have read permissions to it though I left only System Account at library permissions .

Am I missing something?

Break inheritance and carry over anonymous access


I have a library.  It is set to anonymous access. 

But when I broke the inheritance on a single page in that library, the anonymous access was gone.

Is there a way that I can break the permission inheritance of each page and still keep anonymous access?
