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
this.
