IIS4: URLS and Security

By mccb ·
Two ?'s in one.

1: I understand it is possible to setup NT4 and IIS4 to use what is sometimes referred to as vanity URLS, i.e. http://myname.mydomain.com which would typically point to http://www.mydomain.com/myname/. How best should I go about setting this up?

2. I also want to password protect directories without using third party tools using current NT User Group(s). Is this possible? If not, what it the best way to setup internet password protected directories with multiple user names? Thanks for the help.

1. You can do it using MS DNS Server (or any other DNS Srever like BIND) to create aliases for one IP few names. Than you have to create new virtal host in Microsoft Manegement Console, where you fill domain name and other settings

2. You can do it just uncheck checkbox in foulder properties stylesheet in Directory Security/Ananymous Access and Authorization Control/Allow Ananymous Access. IIS will use NTFS Permitions for this foulder

PS Sorry for my english. If you need more help write me.

I am not sure about the answer for 2) but for 1) you can simply add the entry to your DNS as in direct myname.mydomain.com to point to the same IP as www.mydomain.com/myname.
