Enable IP address restriction in IIS

The Edit tab under directory security is not active. Appears dimmed. How do I go around this to set up IP address restriction. I am running  IIS 5.0 in windows 2000 professional. Have the .Net framework installed.

I believe that only applies to domains.

I am not sure I understand. May be I am not clear myself. Can you explain in detail

Let me put my question again. I have IIS 5.0 running on my machine. I want to allow users from specific machines only within my office to access the pages I intend to host from my machine. I am building a MS access database with ASP.Net as the interface.

Edit Button under directory secuirty tab only applies to domain controllers, you are running this on a win2k pro, thus it is grayed out(not an available option.)

So it means that either I should have win 2k server on my machine or incorporate it in the code.  

 Is that right?

Sorry I don't have better news.  So, your answer is yes.  Let Access do your authentication.

Alright.  

In Access you mean create a table for ipaddress and then use it for authentication.

Is there some way I can do it in code. like a web.config or something.
