I have IIS6 running on a W2K3 server with an ISAPI dll which needs to access sqlite files on an XP machine in the domain. IIS6 is running under "Local System" on the DC What's the best way of allowing it R/W access to the sqlite files? Can I add "Local System" to a domain security group? Or what is the minimum security reduction I have to make to the db files to allow iIS6 access?

    Create a domain user account and run the IIS application pool for the site with that user. Make sure to restart the server.

    The remote files you are trying to access would have to be a shared folder so on that computer share the folder and make sure the user that you assign for IIS has NTFS permissions AND share permissions
