Here's a quick howto for securing certain directories on IIS. I'm doing this example and screenshots from Windows XP, but it should work the same on a Windows 2000 machine. First of all, I have c:\Inetpub\wwwroot as my Home Directory:
Create a test directory to secure, or select an existing directory. For the purposes of this demonstration, I created an "admin" directory under c:\Inetpub\wwwroot:
Create an index.html file in the admin directory with the following contents:
<html> <head> <title>Login Success</title> </head> <body> Congrats - you made it! </body> </html>
Now we need to configure IIS to protect the "admin" folder from just anyone.
Integrated Windows authentication will allow users to auto-login if they're using IE and logged into the domain. Basically, this setup will allow only domain users to view the "admin" folder.
