is it possible to have a .asp page (only one) handled by iis in a different security context than iuser? i want one (only) script on an .asp page to have access to a folder that i have explicitly denied access to the iuser account (ie i want this asp page to operate as a user with higher credentials).

iis 6 on win2k3 server

thanks in advance

Yes, put the page in a virtual subdir of yor site and set the secsettings as you want there... You can NOT set settings for a single page in a site by itself in IIS.

Hi

Ahh, well, just have this in your protected ASP page:

<%
Dim siteBase = "http://www.yourdomain.com/"
If Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_REFERER"] <> siteBase & "yourhigherpermissionpage.asp" Then
    Response.Redirect(Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_REFERER"])
End If
%>

Regards,

Though the answer has already been accepted I thought I would post a correction:

You *can* set the anonymous user identity for a single page in IIS. You can set Authentication methods at the page level and this is where you specify the account used for anonymous access (if you are using anonymous).

For this particular question there is no need to create an entire vdir to host a single page, simply change the anonymous user account for that specific page.
