Set an Anonymous Access Account

If you enable anonymous access, you must specify a Windows 2000 account for the server to use in place of the credentials that authenticated users provide. The permissions assigned to the account are given to any user that logs on anonymously.

To set an anonymous access account:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to NNTP.


    1. Server
    2. Protocols
    3. NNTP
  3. In the console tree, right-click a virtual server, and then click Properties.
  4. On the Access tab, click Authentication.
  5. Make sure Allow anonymous is selected, and then click Anonymous.
  6. Click Browse, and then select a user account.
