Great to hear from you sir.
Hope you are staying safe.
I just turned off Anonymous Authentication and enabled Windows Authentication and now it works.
The only issue (a minor one) is that unlike running on my local machine where the application automatically authenticates my account and allows me in, the application is asking me to sign in using my Windows account.
Once this is done, I am automatically in and it works now.
When this app runs on our production server, users are not explicitly asked to sign in. Their identities are automatically recognized and they are in without having to sing in.
Oh well, this is our test site. I guess we have to deal with having to sign in all the time.
UPDATE: I set .Net Rules in IIS as well to deny anonymous users and now it is no longer challenging for authentication.
Many thanks. You have never failed me. Thank you sir.
