Anonymous vs NT logon

If I select Anonymous in IIS under Security for my application and provide a user other than IUSR which has permissions to create folders, etc. on another server, I am able to create the folder I need.

However, if I don't select Anonymous, and my NT logon is a user with permissions to create folders on the other server (found in Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")), the applcation fails and I get a "Permission denied" error on the line of code where I tried to create the folder. Same code, just not selecting Anonymous.

Does the web browser run under a different user EVEN WHEN Anonymous is not selected? If so, how do I access the user and give it permissions?

I need to not use Anonymous as I capture the NT Logon and give permissions to the application based on that logon.

Any suggestions on how I can get the NT user ability to create a folder on another server through the application running in a browser?
