The Server could not complete your request SharePoint Designer 2013

When I tried opening SharePoint 2013 site in SharePoint Designer, I got the following error:

When I clicked on Details, it opened another dialog and continuously pop up window is opening and not able to open the SharePoint site.

 Finally got an error message
    1.   Go to Run -> type Inetmgr -> Open the IIS
    2.   In the Web Sites select “SharePoint Web Services” in the list

    3.   Click on the Authentication and Enable “Anonymous Authentication” as shown below:

   4.   After enabling this, I am able to open the SharePoint site in designer without any issues
