Q. How do I map Authentix to use an NT account?

A. First create the user in NT that you'll want to have mapped through Authentix. Once you've done this, edit your NTFS security properties for the directory or directories you want protected. If you add a group to the NTFS permissions, make sure your user is in that group!

In Authentix, click Access from the menu. Then add the directory you want to protect and map to the NT account. Once added, click on the Basic/Cookie tab: Choose Map Requests to NT User: and enter the correct NT Username and NT Password. Then click on By Internal DB tab and make sure you enter the Authentix group or user(s). Click OK, OK, OK, OK.

Now you'll need to open IIS MMC, Internet Service Manager, to edit the web site security. Find the web site of interest and open to the directory that is to be protected. Right-click on the directory name and click on Properties. Under Directory Security, make sure Allow Anonymous is on, and Basic Authentication is off, and NTCR (Integrated Windows Authentication in Windows 2000) can be on or off, however we recommend turning this off if you are having problems.
