Configure anonymous access. One of the main features of web applications is the ability
to allow anonymous access to the site collections they contain. Anonymous access can allow
the site to be viewed without requiring a login while retaining all the needed permissions for
authenticated users to add, edit, modify, or delete site content. Anonymous access is enabled
in two core steps: first by permitting anonymous access at the web-application level and then
by enabling anonymous access at the site collection level.
Master It Someone else has allowed anonymous access on the web application, and
you’re configuring your site collection. You want anonymous users to view only the
Status list and nothing else. How do you configure the site?
Set different zones for different access methods. Each web application can support up to
five public URLs that it displays in the address bar and on the page in links and paths. Four of
the public URLs can be used for manually entered alternate web addresses or used by
extending the web application to a new IIS Web Site, providing a new URL (including a new port if
desired), and applying different authentication policies to the same site. For example, one web
application within the local network can permit anonymous access, but authentication can be
required for anyone accessing the site through the Internet public URL. The five public URLs
are identified by their zone , and additional internal URLs can be mapped to each zone.
Master It Your web application has three zones configured with extended web
applications, each with their own public URL. Because of a company policy change, you need to
remove the Internet zone from the web application. What is the recommended method
for doing this?
