securing a directory in iis5 without usi

By sdfgsdf ·
I am running WIN2K server with IIS5 as my public web server. The bulk of the site allows anonymous access. Their is a members site that requires password protection via an ASP script that validates against an access or sql database. This allows me to protect pages without using the ACL (not to mention purchasing internet access licenses). It allows self registration eliminating much of my administrative overhead. I am adding a download page, but if anyone knows the full path name and naming scheme to the file, they can go directly to the file without first going through the login page. My question: how can i secure the directory as well without adding users to the ACL?

Protect.pl (a freeware Perl script) claims to do just this. You will need to load a Perl compiler? interpreter? in your IIS box and follow the instructions given.

is where it's at. I can't say I've had luck with it, but I don't know PERL from BASIC, so what would you expect? I know that it can be made to work, though.
