i am trying to setup external access to our intranet site. when it is accessed from within the local network it will just work, but i want to setup authentication for when it is accessed from the net.
I have setup a secondary site within IIS manager, setup the relevant bindings, and security settings (i am using windows Authentication) etc. everything wokrs fine when the Authorization rule is set to all users. What i want to do is only allow access to certain users.
On the new second site I go into the Authorisation rules and specify a particular user to have access. when i do this the first site stops working with a 401 (not authorised) error.
i have no idea why this is happening, i cannot see any thing on google.
Any help will be appreciated.
