Auto Login for IIS Directory Security
Posted on 2004-04-06
So here is the situation that I'm trying to solve here. We have a folder that contains a bunch of html files, and we don't want someone to be able to just type the URL of one of the html files and view them. I want to be able to have it so the only way anyone would be able to get to this folder and its contents is through a link on the CMS site that would validate them with its security and then validate them in IIS directory based on the site's security. So far easy its been enough just turn on IIS Directory security. The problem comes in that the client has to login in to their site, but the client doesn't want to have another login pop-up; so that once they've logged in once, all other security checks should be verified through the CMS site's security. I tried working with ASP.NET authenication stuff all day yesterday and wasn't able to get it to work.
The Folder Structure would be:
-Login.aspx (file used to authenticate and redirect to Example1 folder)
