I have never worked in .net or html environment. I am trying to add a button on a html page that runs a vbscript. Also, I need to add a link on html that would only allow certain people have access to the link. Is there anyway that link would only let the domain admins to open it?

Thanks,
Paul

For Button that runs VBScript look this link. It also shows example so should be easy for you to copy that in your web-page.
http://www.csidata.com/custserv/onlinehelp/vbsdocs/vbs9.htm

For admin specific link you will need to write some ASP.NET code.

In your ASPX web-page put the following,

<asp:LinkButton ID="AdminLink" Text="Only for Admin" runat="server" Visible="false"></asp:LinkButton>

In your code-behind (aspx.cs) of that page write

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    bool isAdminUser = false;
    //Put code that determines whether current user is Admin. If user is Admin set isAdminUser = true;            
    AdminLink.Visible = isAdminUser;
}

Open in new window


HTH!

I'm not sure what your after here.  Firstly you can not run vb script from just html you need a server side scripting language like asp,aspx.

If it a vb file (.vbs) that you need to run just as admins then put the scripts in a folder and only give admins access to the folder.

If you have vb script inside an asp page then you could restrict access to the page(s) using your webserver e.g iis.  On the security options use windows authenction and give admins permission to the web folder.  This way they will authenticate automatically using their windows credentials but other users with get a login prompt.

The other option is to still user windows authentication as this gives you access to some variables to query ad via a script using ldap.

The attached code will only display domain admin information if the current user is in the domain admin group.
<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<%
'Get Groups
Dim objNetwork, objUser, CurrentUser
Dim strGroup

	Const backup_Group = "cn=domain admins"

	Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
	Set objUser = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
	Set CurrentUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & objUser.UserName)
	strGroup = LCase(Join(CurrentUser.MemberOf))
	'response.Write strGroup

  If InStr(strGroup,backup_Group) Then
    session("auth") = "True"
  End If
  %>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Restrict Access</title>
</head>

<body>
<div style="margin-bottom:30px;">All Users can see this content</div>
<% if session("auth") = "True" then %>
<div style="margin-bottom:30px;">Only admins can see this content</div>
<% end if %>
</body>
</html>
