authentication for directory via IIS 5.0

I am trying to limit access to cgi directory for authenticated users only. When I go to IIS Manager -> I right clicked the cgi directory -> properties -> directory security -> anonymous access and authentication ... -> edit -> and left only windows integrated authentication -> picked the user name which can access.

OK, BUT when I open the file inside this directory I do not know what domain and as a result I am denied.

I also tried first to go to directory (NOT via IIS) and changed security and or sharing (permission) to authenticated users and this did not even give me this authentication window when opening the page from "secured" directory.

What should I do, please ?

I think if you go into the DOS prompt and type: ipconfig /all
it wil show you what domain you are on.

alternativly, if you go to you domain controller and have a look at the config, im sure you can find the domain.

hope that helps

I know my default domain is jab (from dns, from iis and from ipconfig). But it does not work. I also changed this autenthicated user from user to guest and it does not work - again I get the window with user, pssw and domain query.

The only way how to open the protected file is to define the specific user as administartors - but in that case it does not ask me for psswd etc.

actually correction:

when I use administrators login - it is the only thing which works= it will give me the authentication window and it will accept complete login incl. local default domain - but it is kind of too strong....
