Toggle of Anonymous access fixed for MOSS 2007 sites

And I only had to do it at the site collection level (site settings -> advanced permissions) and NOT the web application (central admin -> application management -> authentication provider) level

What I did :

Make sure the viewformpageslockdown feature is enabled on the site
Navigate to the top level site collection’s root web Site Settings
Click the Advanced permissions link under the Users and Permissions section
Now under the settings menu, select anonymous access
Set Anonymous users can access to Nothing

Then step through the process again and re-enable anonymous access by setting anonymous access to Entire Web site.

And it works !!!

So now http://www.ragavtest.com/Pages/forms/allitems.aspx (for illustration only as link is not active) returns a 401 UNAUTHORIZED and the website is now secured as it should be.

And all it required was a toggle of anonymous access for the viewformpageslockdown feature to kick-in.

If I have Publishing web under Publishing site, anonymous works great for father (site) and still brings auth dialog for son (web). For other templates, like Team, it works without issues.Breaking the inheritance and explicit defining of anonymous access on son site doesn't help.

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to (wow power leveling) those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
