Hi Experts,

I'm running a .net application on Windows 2008 R2/IIS7 and this application should be able to upload and read files on a mapped folder from some other server under the same domain.

A file can be only uploaded when "Everyone" given with full permission. But I think it's not a secure way for a production environment. (I have tried giving "Network Service" full permission bit it's only allow for me to read a already uploaded file but I can't do any new uploading.)

Can you please advice with me on how to change the permission to work IIS correctly/securely  ?

Thanks a lot for your time !

What happens when your try and upload these files? error? messages?

Procmon will tell you what has failed with permission issues

Hello,

Please be sure that you have Shared & NTFS write permission on this shared folder for application pool identity user and anonymous user.

Thanks,

Yes you will need the app pool identity user but as network services from the client machine (in this case the initial IIS server)

better still try a dedicated user of that machine or if in a domain try a domian user. This should clear up any confusion.

If still a problem use procmon to look at see the real time permissions and access on the end server.
