Not authorized to view Extended Web Application (FBA)

I've followed one tutorial that explains how to set up FBA in SharePoint. But, after I've done configuring all three sites - Central Site, Base Application and Extended - when I try to access the extended application, I encounter HTTP Error 401.1 - "You are not authorized to view this page".

Lemme explain what I've done, deviated from the tutorials. As my IIS has already given port 80 to base SharePoint application, I set another port number to my extended application. I did so because I don't exactly know how can I configure 'HOSTS' file. I am not able to touch DNS, too.

In that, I decided to use http://<baseAppName>:XXXXX/ . But, as I mentioned, I am getting 401.

Help is much appreciated.
