IIS group access

I have a asp app that I wish to limit execution access to a universal
security group during beta test...

I've tried restricting permissions using ntfs, the virtual directory
and the net.config file (which I assume will not work as this is not a
vb.net app).

So far, access is still universal. Any ideas?

BTW, I can *deny* access to the group with NTFS but then all non-group
members have access...

I'm a little confused by your mention of a net.config file. OK, so this
is not a vb.net application, but is it an asp.net application? I.E., do
the pages have .asp or .aspx extensions? If the latter, then you have an
asp.net application.

Assuming you have a classic asp application (why is there a net.config
file? Actually, "web.config " is usual name mentioned for this file),
then you are going to need to use application logic to control authority
by looking up the current user's membership in the security group via an
LDAP query. Google should find you plenty of vbscript examples of doing

When we login via the web we get access to the database without...

In the past I always regarded user/group security as fairly tight. It is tricky to implement, but once implemented properly, it can't be cracked except through a dedicated effort. Recently, however, I saw something which greatly lowered my opinion of user/group security. I sent a secured database to a colleague. I forgot to send him the workgroup file, but that didn't slow him down at all. The next day, he sent me the work I had...

When using Access security can each group have only one password? So all members of the group have the same and/or one password? Then in order to have each member of a group have their own password then you would need a group for each member?

I'm attempting to implement User-level security on an Access 2003 database in Access 2000 format and have hit a brick wall. I created a Workgroup Information File with myself as admin and added users without any privileges as suggested by Access.

Hi, the operating system (Unix) considers a php-server as a user with name "nobody". For example, if my php-script saves a file uploaded by a user, the owner of the file will be "nobody". I would like to know if "nobody" is considered as "group" or "others" (in terms of the "chmod" command)? In other words, is "chmod g+w dirname" sufficient to allow to "nobody" to write in the directory "dirname" or should I use "chmod o+w dirname"?
