Step 4: Now on next window, a new window “Authentication and Authorization Information” will open, here you can tick check boxes for “Authentication” i.e. Anonymous, Basic. Now drill down “Authorization” allows access to specific user. You can provide access to all users, anonymous users but it is highly recommended “Specific users” due to security reason.
