    In a default setup, ASP pages run under the local IUSR_[serverName] local
    account. Another machine on your network with a share will not recognize
    SERVERNAME\IUSR_SERVERNAME when that user account tries to access the share,
    so access will be denied. If you are in a domain environment, you can
    change things in IIS so that your anonymous user is not the local IUSR
    account, but is a domain account instead. Then just make sure that domain
    account has NTFS and share permission to the share.

    See this article for some more info:
