Locking Down IIS files and sites

We need assistance in building a VB Script that can set IP/Subnet restrictions on  multiple folders and/or files in IIS for our web based application. Will need to accept a list of addresses and/or subnets. It needs to work under IIS 7, 6, 5.

The current script on hand does not work in IIS7 without the IIS6 compatibility layer. Even then, running it twice will cause problems. Running the script below multiple times on IIS 4/5/6 causes no problems.

on error resume next
 
 
'SiteIndex will typically be 1, but may change where Windows SBS, Sharepoint, or Intranets are pre-existing
  'Running against wrong site will typically be benign as the script is looking for very specific names
  'If they are not there, not too much happens! 
  'You should also see that the "The following IP addresses are now Allowed:" will show nothing, indicating failure.
  'The 'ListSiteIndex' subroutine will show the current setup and will help if '1' is not working for you
    
 
'ToFiles array is for individual files and is geared towards locking individual files to local/admin access only
'ToFolders array is suited to locking the whole virtual folder to just the CU subnet(s)
'Any IP/Subnet not specified will be DENIED
  'For just an IP use ("nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn") 
  'For Subnet, ("nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn,nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn")
  'Adding Multiple entries is ok, and you can mix IP and Subnets together like ("127.0.0.1","192.168.5.0,255.255.255.0")

Hi,

although WMI is supposed to be supported on IIS7, it tends to be problematic in some cases - as you have apparently discovered.

For IIS7 config, it is a better idea to use appCmd.exe to apply configuration changes, or to use httpmodule support using c# or other managed code.

for appcmd.exe see:  http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/114/getting-started-with-appcmdexe/

for httpmodules see: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/241/configuration-extensibility/

cheers.
