Not sure if this is relevant or not, but check the file permissions on the
directory and file - windows can be inconsistent on applying permissions
depending on how the file got there in the first place.

Subject: [thelist] IIS web site problem - include forces 401.3 error

Hi all,

I'm no IIS expert but I've never had a problem like this before setting up
dev sites. I went into IIS, set up a site, set it to a port number (1024 in
this case) fired up a basic ASP file in the root directory. Works just fine.

I add a couple directories and some images. Works just fine. I add a
directory named 'include', put an asp file in there (a web trends script)
and include in my ASP file, and boom, I get this:

"You do not have permission to view this directory or page due to the access
control list (ACL) that is configured for this resource on the Web server."
- 401.3 error.

If I remove the include, it works fine. I tried changing the content of the
include to just text only, but it doesn't matter, using an include locks me
out. I have like 10 other dev sites running right now, none of them have
this problem. 

Anyone have any idea how to fix this or what is going on? Here is the
offending line:

<!-- #include file="include/webtrends.asp" -->



"I was in a convenience store reading a magazine and the clerk came up to me
and said "This is not a library". so I said, "All right, I will talk louder
