After entering the right password on the console, you still cannot log in to the WFBS console. Instead, you get the following message:

Your Worry-Free Business Security Advanced Session has timed out. Please login again.


The issue is caused by lack of permission for the IUSR account in the ..\PCCSRV\TEMP folder.

To resolve the issue:

  1. Go to the ..\Security Server\PCCSRV\Temp folder.
  2. Right-click the folder and select Properties.
  3. Click on the Security tab.
  4. Under the Group or User Names section, do one of the following:
    • For Windows 200/2003: Select IUSR_Server-Name.
    • For Windows 2008/ EBS 2008 /SBS 2008: Select IIS_IUSRS(Server_Name\IIS_IUSRS).
  5. Make sure that Read and Write permissions are checked. If not, click Edit and check Allow for the two permissions.

If the issue persists, update the Anonymous Authentication credentials:

  1. Open the IIS management console.
  2. Double-click <Server Name> and Sites to expand.
