I have to protect a directory on the server with login and password. A automated system will download some file I'll put inside through http giving login and password.

I guess I have to do this:
1) create a new user in USER section.
2) Right clic on the dir I want to protect and assign read-control only to that user.
3) Leave blank all permission for user "everyone".

I don't want that the user can access my server through terminal service in any way.

Is the procedure correct ?
