Password protecting webpages on IIS

I have a small website that my group here at work uses. It houses alot of information that our group uses exclusively but there are users from other groups that sometime use stuff on the page. Is there a way I can password protect the pages I don't need them accessing?


Right click on the folder/file you want to protect and select security. Remove the IIS anonymous user from the list of users with access rights. Add the usernames of the people that you want to have access. You will have to set up these user account in computer manager before you can assing them. You may want to add them all to a special group first (such as "members" group or whatever you want to call it) then assing the group access to the folder you are protecting.


OSNN Addict
You have to change something inside Internet Information Services as well:

Open IIS and go to the properties of the site (or directory) you want to secure.

Open the directory security Tab
Click on Edit...

You have to disable Anonymous Access...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
