I'm a newby with IIS and have been asked specifically to learn password protecting files for a job interview.
Assuming I am understanding the exact request correctly, here is what I am attempting to do. I'm trying to get prompted for a login when a user named jethro attempts to access file1.htm. The user account jethro has been added to local users and groups. Windows authentication is enabled in IIS authentication. Anonymous authentication is disabled. I believe I did it exactly the way the youtube tutorial below says. For some reason his works and mine doesnt. He clicks on file1 and gets prompted for a login. I click on file1.htm and the file opens without allowing me to put in jethro's credentials.
Does anything pop in anyones mind about what I might be missing? I dont expect anyone to actually watch the youtube but its there just in case someone wants to see exactly what I am trying to do.
