IIS 6 - Intranet, Protected Directories and access for certian network groups
Posted on 2007-03-26
We have a local Intranet. I have searched the forum and have not found the answer I am looking for. We are using Windows 2003, IIS 6 and we have an Active Directory system. Here is what I want to accomplish.
IT wants to have their own directory of documents that is secure so no other departments can have access. I do not want IT users to be prompted for a userid and password. I would like the system to know what Active Directory group they are apart of and allow access. In IIS 6, I open the Intranet website and choose the folder ITS. I right click and go to Permissions. Now here is where I get stuck. I have no idea what to edit. It looks as if I can add the IT group but I am unsure and do not want to screw anything up.
I know I can use a database with a list of users and use ASP.NET to grab the user name, compare and allow access if needed but that means I have to keep that list updated. I would like to utilize the IT group that is in the network system.
Thanks for the help
