401 Error when browsing to REST
401.1 Unauthorized: Logon Failed
If you try to access your newly created web application with a real nice FQDN, you end up getting a 401.1, even after adding the site to the local intranet zone in IE and even after being prompted 3 times and filling in the correct credentials. What’s missing? You need to configure the loopback Check. This issue occurs when the Web site uses Integrated Authentication and has a name that is mapped to the local loopback address.
There are a couple of ways to handle this. Specify host names, or Disable the loopback completely, both methods are below.
Specify Host Names
- Click Start, click Run, type Regedit and then click OK
- In Registry Editor, locate and click on the following registry key:
- Right-click MSV1_0, point to NEW and then click on Multi-String Value.
- Type BackConnectionHostNames, and then press ENTER
- Right-click BackConnectionHostNames and then click Modify
- In the Value data box, type the host name or the host names for the sites that are on the local computer and then click OK
- Do an IISRESET
Disable the loopback Check
