in my web.congif file in a subfolder to the root, I have the attached Code Snippet.

Based on this, all users should be denied access except for those possessing the role of OfficeStaff.
This is not happening for some reason. Thanks for the assistance.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <system.web>
    <authorization>
      <allow roles="OfficeStaff" />
      <deny users="*" />
    </authorization>
  </system.web>
</configuration>

i just saw it was a subfolder...
I checked and the problem is not in that web.config it is exactly like mine, an mine work.
Did you try to do an iis reset to make sure the file is read by the web server?
