Basic Authentication using IIS 5.0 & Fro

By mike_jose ·
The first problem I'm experiencing is with Basic Authentication, IIS is not authenticating the users credentials correctly (it allows anyone to log into the site) when the virtual directory in IIS is pointing to a FrontPage web. I can get Basic Authentication to work correctly if I make the virtual directory in IIS point to a local folder on the server.

The second problem I'm having is to do with mail settings. I have FrontPage Extensions installed on an Win 2K server running IIS 5.0 and I have a form that send the form results in the form of email. The problem I'm having is that whenever a user fills out the form and submits it, the from name in the email is the one that I setup in the Mail Settings in FrontPage. Is it possible to set it up so that the from name in the email is the name of the person that actually sent the email rather than what is specified in the Mail settings?

In answer to the first question : There are many ways to "control" access to external and internal web & ftp sites through IIS. There are way via Frontpage server extensions ISA Server is another.(if you use ISA server). AD can be used to control access. For quick access changes sites, open IIS management console. Expand your IIS server, highlight the virtual site you wish to change policies, then right click. Open the properties of that site. Click on the Sirectory Security tab. From there youcan choose Two different ways, each way having further restrictions you can choose from. In Anonymous access you can allow or deny, require basic authentication, Digest authentication or Intergrated authentication. you can also change the account used for anonymous access and permissions of that account via AD. You can limit access via IP address or by Domain name.

As far as your email problem, I defer that to others who might better answer that question than I.
