We are using Forms Authentication for our website.  For the sandbox version I would like to add Windows Authentication so that only authenticated users can access the site. Here is what I have done.
1. Disabled Anonymous Access
2. Setup a Windows user account that is mentioned in the web.config file under the allow users
3. Deny users is equal to *
4. When someone tries to load the site it prompts for the user name and password. However the user is not allowed to go to any other page on the site.

Thanks,
Aditya

First thing to try is changing "*" to "?". The asterisk mean deny everybody, whereas the question mark means deny anonymous users only.

None of the above solutions worked. I am going to allow the people to access the sandbox without any authentication until I find a solution.
