Unable to login to Localhost

Wade's Desk

I have done a new install of Windows XP with SP3 updates. I've installed
IIS from my Windows XP installation disk with FP 2000 Server Extensions.
The web server is working and I can access it by typing http://localhost
in my web browser. When I try to open the local server in FP 2002 or FP
2000, I'm prompted for a Username and Password. When I type in either my
Administrator with admin password or Wade with user password, it is
rejected. I'm able to open my remotely hosted web sites with no
problems. I've also tried using the static IP address instead of
"localhost". Does anyone have an idea why my username and password is
not being accepted? I do not remember having this problem on previous
installations (though I have not hosted any webs locally (on my own
machine) for several years. I've tested this on two different WinXP Pro
machines with the same results. I've disabled Windows firewall with the
same results. I can not seem to come up with a username/password
combination that works. Help! -wade

Right click My computer and select Manage.
In the management console, click the plus by:
Services and applications
then Internet information services,
then web sites.

Right click Default web site and select Properties.
On the Default Website Properties dialog, click the Directory Security Tab.
In the Anonymous access and authentication control section, click the Edit button.
At the bottom of the Authentication Methods Dialog check "Integrated Windows Authentication."

Click Ok all the way out, close the management console and reboot.
( or stop and restart IIS )

In both the test machines the "Integrate Windows Authentication" was
already check-marked. I removed the check mark and saved the setting,
then re-enabled it. After restarting the sever, I was still not able to
login using either the Administrator or Wade account login userid/
passwords.

Wade:
Are you running IE7? If so, try this: In IE7 Tools | Internet Options
| Security | Local Intranet | Sites | Advanced and add localhost to the
list.
That was it!

I do not use IE any more, as I prefer Firefox with a number of Mozilla
plug-ins. Consequently, I forget how integrated IE remains in the scheme
of Windows.

I also added the machine's name to the list.

Thank you so much for your help! I'm very impressed!

Hi Everyone,

I am currently installing OBIEE 11G and the prerequisites are Oracle 11g DB, RCU. I have installed the database and couldnt proceed with RCU installation, as I couldnt connect to localhost. I tried with 2 different tns:

(DESCRIPTION=
(ADDRESS=
(PROTOCOL=TCP)
(HOST=localhost)
(PORT=1521)
)
(CONNECT_DATA=
(SERVER=dedicated)
(SERVICE_NAME=orcl)
)
)

ORCL=
(DESCRIPTION=
(ADDRESS=
(PROTOCOL=TCP)
(HOST=127.0.0.1)
(PORT=1521)
)
(CONNECT_DATA=
(SERVER=dedicated)
(SERVICE_NAME=orcl)
)
)

and I tried to login with sys account. Though I dono how to set a pwd for this , I just tried with one given in the manual. I couldnt login and the am able to see ORA: 01034 error.
I dono how to proceed with this, as localhost connection should be a valid one, inorder to install other stuffs. Please help me in this regard.

Regards,
Kavitha
