Hi all,

So, I'm about to give up after spending more than 10 hours trying to get rails on IIS working. I'm stuck with a 401.3 error, and have gone through everything twice or three times. All the permissions are set as outlined. I've even tried FileMon and the AuthDiag tool to try to get some more insight into what the issue is.

If anyone has any suggestions, they would be much appreciated.

Hi Evan,

If you haven't figured it out already, try doing a restart on IIS. This usually fixes any issues like this when initially deploying the rails app under IIS.

However, if this doesn't fix your issue, 401 is unauthorized so you may want to verify that you are not using integrated windows authentication. If you need to use it, try turning it off to test that things work. If they do, it is probably read permissions on the website/directory of the application.
