I have a website that I want to grant access only to specific IP addresses, except for one folder that Needs anonymous access granted to all.  Is there any way to do this?

Just a thought > add an additional NIC to the server and add a new IP address in the same subnet and create a new website and select the new Ip address (instead of using all unassigned) in the website content folder should point to the"  folder that Needs anonymous access granted to all" .Make sure you have selected the IP address for

instead of adding a new NIC you can also add any additional IP to the existing NIC --need to try I am not sure .

Then filter using your corporate firewall or in the web server firewall.

IIS6 allow or deny to configure  access to a specific list of IP addresses. IP addresses can be specified individually or as a group by using a subnet mask.

You can also specify IP addresses by using a domain name, but doing so adds the overhead of a DNS lookup for each connection.

You cannot allow specific ip addresses to a web site and allow annoynmous access to a page or folder within using iis manager.

On the other and you can write a program or using rewrite rule to accomplish this, though I have not done this before, but I have use iis rewrite rule
