Anonymous Access: Everything you always wanted to know, but didn't know to ask
Enabling Anonymous Access in SharePoint isn’t just a matter of flipping a switch in IIS manager. Anonymous Access must be enabled in IIS and then configured in SharePoint. But there are also situations where this basic configuration isn't sufficient. In this talk we’ll review how to enable and configure anonymous access for SharePoint web sites, lists, and libraries. Then we'll turn our attention to strategies that can be used overcome specific problems with SharePoint anonymous access. We'll demonstrate solutions and workarounds for questions like:
1) How do you require authentication for some items while maintaining anonymous access for the rest?
2) What content from a personal MySite can be accessed via anonymous access?
3) How do you enable anonymous responses to a discussion list?
4) Can BLOGS and Wiki sites be used in an anonymous access site collection?
