    We're running Sitefinity 4.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard. 

    Out of the blue, I'm getting this error every time I try to publish a page:

    The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Basic Realm="Restricted"'

    This only happens on the remote server. Running locally and pointing to the remote server database, it works fine.

    I don't have an answer for you, but assuming it's not a total shut-out (in which case file/db security would start favourite) I guess I would use Firebug and watch the Net inspector as the page loads, to see if I can identify exactly which requests are being denied.
