    Thanks Andrew!

    I know what is the delegation and how to use it. Im using this authentication method with iis7 ftp, but on the same site I cant authenticate through webdav the same users.

    I added the users to the site's WebDAV Authoring Roles, and   to the IIS Manager Permissons (it needed for the ftp too). WebDAV is enabled for the site. Authorization Rules: All Users. Authentication: Basic, Windows, Anonymous enabled. (WebDAV works with windows users!!)  Should I add any other settings to work with IIS Manager Users?

    I wrote a blog entry on how to enable IIS Users for Web Applications once, however it addresses only the Authentication side of things:


    The authorization is not going to work great since it requires a Query String argument to specify which Site or Application you are connecting and that is why I did not added it. I would recommend then relying on Web DAV authorization rules for protecting who has access to your site.

    Let me know if this is what you were looking for.
