Web Folders and how they are viewed.
Posted on 2004-04-19
I am the Network Manager for a comprehensive school in Manchester. I am working on a project at the moment to enable the kids to access their home folders from home via the Internet. Everything is going pretty well. I have set up my Zone File table with the ISP and have about six different sub domain names I use with IIS5 on a Windows 2000 server. Everything is set up as I want it and the server asks for authentication when a remote user trys to connect - so almost there...... but.......
When the remote user get access to their home folder, it is displayed as an FTP type page "Directory Listing", and not as a true web folder. Does anybody know why this is? I have tried unticking "Allow directory Browsing" in IIS but this denies access to the folders altogether. Also I have have tried tinkering with the NTFS permissions to see if this would make a difference but I does not appear to.
Am I missing something obvious here?
Any help greatly appreciated!
