This can be accomplished by going into IIS and select the directory/program being executed. In Properties select "Directory Security", then click the "edit" button for Authentication control. Under "Allow Anynmous Access" click "Edit" and then de-select the default account and add an account that has full permissions to the network devices you want to hit. Ex: Enter a domain admin account.
