Yup, In IIS Right click on your web site and goto Properties and select the directory security tab. Click "Edit" under Anonymous Access, make sure anonymous access is unchecked, this will set the default properties for your web site. Now goto the folder you want to open up to everyone, right click on it, goto properties, directory security, edit, and check the anonymous access box. _____________________________________________ Pete Freitag (pfreitag at cfdev.com) CFDEV.COM ColdFusion Developer Resources http://www.cfdev.com/ -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org]On Behalf Of jon steele Sent: Sunday, September 23, 2001 5:44 PM To: TheList Evolt Subject: [thelist] Private IIS, with one public folder Hi, I have a win2k machine with IIS. What I want to have is one directory which is available from any machine that knows my ip, while my www directory is available only to me, while developing/testing locally. So for example, only I can access the files in wwwroot, but anyone can access the folder wwwroot/public/. To help explain my point... for example, in Apache, I would put the following in httpd.conf: <Directory "C:/inetpub/wwwroot"> Order allow,deny Allow from 127.0.0.1 </Directory> <Directory "C:/inetpub/wwwroot/public"> Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> How can I achieve this under IIS? I'd appreciate any ideas! TIA Jon __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Get email alerts & NEW webcam video instant messaging with Yahoo!
