  • IIS Directory/Folder restriction

    Jun 19, 2018 06:54 AM|chowdab2|LINK

    Hi,

    I have a public facing website in IIS8.5 . I am using anonymous authentication and App pool Identity for my IIS site

    Now i want to enable read only access to a specific folder in my Website to some specific users. All other users should not have access to that folder

    What is best way to achieve this. As this is Public facing websites users are both domain users as well as non domain users

    Regards,

    Abhishek

    I am using anonymous authentication and App pool Identity for my IIS site

    Anonymous authentication means there is only one user (the anonymous account).

    So if you do want to add some restriction, switch to other authentication methods and then URL authorization can help,
