We have a web server running on a Windows 2008 Server. We are trying to have it prompt for a login when an employee clicks on a certain weblink which is housed on the server. Does anyone know how to do this? We were able to do this easily on our old web server that was housed on a Windows 2000 Server, but not on 2008. Thanks.

To do this, go to your IIS manager (Click Start, Admin tools and then Internet Information Services Manager), and select the directory you want to protect. In the middle pane, double click 'Authorization Rules'. In the right hand pane, click 'Add Deny Rule'. Select 'All anonymous users' and click OK. Now, to grant users access, click 'Add Allow Rule' and select the 'Specified Users' box. Just type the usernames of the people you want to allow access.

Let me know how you go, and if you have any questions, just let me know!
