In general this must be done by the manager of your web server, which is probably your ISP, send them an email and they should be able to do this for you.

If your Web Server supports some standard for HTML with embedded scripting, such as Microsoft's Active Server Pages then it is possible for you to write the password handling code into each page, but this is a lot harder than simply getting your ISP to password protect your pages.

itssbell,

In IIS console click on properties for the directory which you want to protect, and go to "Directory Security" tab then click on Edit button for "Anonymous Access and Authentication Control" then unselect "Allow Anonymous Access" check box and select "Basic Authentication".

This will cause the user's Web browser to prompt the user to enter a valid Windows NT account user name ans password.


Best regards,
