Difference between version 10 and version 9:

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:
At line 3 added 30 lines.
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:
<title>Login Success</title>
Congrats - you made it!
Now we need to configure IIS to protect the "admin" folder from just anyone.
* Open the IIS Admin Console (Start -&gt; Programs -&gt; Administrative Tools -&gt; Internet Information Services)
* Navigate to COMPUTER_NAME -&gt; Web Sites -&gt; Default Web Site
* Right-click -&gt; Properties for the "admin" folder
* Select the Directory Security tab and click the "Edit" button to change __Anonymous access and authentication control__
* Uncheck ''Anonymous access'', check ''Basic authentication'' (selecting the default domain) and leave ''Integrated Windows authentication'' checked
* Stop and restart Default Web Site
''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.
