My configuration is IIS 6 under Windows 2003 server
Here is my problem:
Lets say I have windows user 'user1' that have own folder 'c:\users\home_user1'. He have ALL rights for this folder. Now I need to get him access to this folder via web. To do it I create virtual directory 'home_user1' in my IIS admin console and point it
to 'c:\users\home_user1'. I allow directory browsing and read this dir. I disallow anonymous access but allow 'Basic Authentication' on this virtual dir.
Now Im able to access http://myserver.com/home_user1/ after authorization and see files in it. But once I click at any file in the dir in browser I get error 404 - file not found. Actually files are 100% exists
So, please, any ideas how to resolve it? Probably this is security and permissions problem. maybe somebody cen tell me ideas how rights must be seting up correctly?
Many thanks for any help. Serge

A 404 would not indicate a security problem.
What kinds of files?
