Q. How to protect a directory that is specified via UNC like this: \\theweb\\$d\inetpub\wwwroot A. david.hart@nscorp.net tells us: We got Authentix to work by making our drive mappings in IIS and Authentix exactly the same. For example, here was our situation.. IIS Map: \\web1\\$d\inetpub\wwwroot Auth Map: \\web1\d - web1\inetpub\wwwroot We changed the IIS Map to match the Auth maps. Works great. Hope this helps. Thanks, Dave Kev's note: Generally, UNC's like this: \\sql1\puresafety\inetpub\wwwroot\clients\d4\ work fine. Perhaps David was having some special issues.
