Access privilege in WIN 2K

Hi,

Under "Default Web Sites" I have created a virtual directory called 'Sample1' and have removed 'Anonymous Access' just to restrict access to all users on 'SERVER1'. To grant access to specific users, I have enabled 'Integrated Windows Authentication' on this virtual directory. This virtual directory points to a physical directory 'MySamples' on  drive D:\. Considering this scenario I have a questions –

1.When I try to access this Virtual Directory through Interdev from another machine 'PC1', I am prompted to enter my User Id & Password. But even after I enter my User Id & Password, it doesnt let me in. It again prompts for User Id & Password.

2. But now when I add my User Id in Administrator group it does allow me to access the Virtual directory through Interdev after I enter my User Id & Password. Is it mandatory to have admin privilege for the user to access it through Interdev ?

Any help wuuld be appreciated.

Thanks,
Ram.

You didn't set your file system(ntfs) permission on the directory. Right-clickt he directory folder, clicked securityn tab, add your user name and give yourself full access permissions. Then you shouldn't have a problem accessing the directory through any app.


Cheers!

In fact I had given the privileges on the folder that VirDir was pointing to but I didnt know that it also creates a mirror inside /inetpub/w3/<VDIR name>. I'll start a new thread for this.

Yes of course it would create a virtual directory, but it is not necessary to give permission to this as long as you've given yourself permissions on the root of inetpub, then you have access to all folders below unless specifically configured not to have access. There will be a "virtual directory" created for each "website" you created on the server (in inetpub/w3). It's by design.

If IIS is going to create a mirror inside /inetpub/3w/ or each VIR-DIR, then what is the significance of the Dir that is actually mapped with the VIR-DIR ?

Hopefully this will work. I just was going over my PAQ's looking for something else when I saw your post and read it again. I just now noticed your request for URL's on the vir-dir topic. Here you go:
