Access denied when trying to open a site when on the server

I just wasted half a day trying to figure out why some feature code was not working.
The feature code used HTTPRequest to get a file from the layouts folder- and kept failing with “Access Denied”.
It also turned out that when I logged on to the server I couldnt browse to the site - it asked me for credentials all the time.
After wasting a long time debugging and troubleshooting, this support article saved the day - a little registry change and everything works.
