Security for Virtual Directories tag not honored

Discussion created by deleted-user-vpHnfyiCToFz on Aug 2, 2012
Under the admin/security/config/security configuration/security for virtual directories enabled tag is not being honored when changing the value from true to false.  Has anyone experienced this?  The issue is that the services need to be authenticated with a username and password every time.  When it was set to false before in the initial install, you didn't have to login to view the rest services.  Now that I set it to true and then back to false, I cannot see the rest services without logging in first.
