Hi all,

I have WSS2 installed on a server that is a member of a domain. Computers in 
our subnet (running windows) that are members of a workgroup are *not* 
allowed to add Events and Announcements to the portal.

I managed to allow the workgroup-connected machines to at least view the 
contents on the portal by allowing anonymous access in the site 
administration, and setting it to "allow access to the entire site". This 
works fine, even our linux-machines can handle this.

However, I'm not sure how to set this up so that users that are using 
workgroup-computers can *add* stuff too.

I've tried to tweak how logons are made to the wss-server from the 
workgroups, but the only thing that works is "Anonymous logon" and 
"Automatic logon only in Intranet zone" and only for viewing. Any try to add 
contents pops up a login box. Entering domain-credentials (domain\username 
and pwd) does not work, the login box just pops back up.

Am I missing anything here? Is what I'm trying to achieve here at all
