Q. Beginner's Step by Step with ODBC.

A. If you are running the software for the first time, here are the steps you need to take to protect a directory using an ODBC datasource: First make sure you can access the directory you wish to protect freely (via http://...), without any IIS/NTFS protections. Use Netscape for this, since IE will sometimes log you in with your current login without telling you. Make sure Basic Authentication is turned OFF in IIS Management console, otherwise it will conflict with AuthentiX Basic Authentication. Make sure Allow Anonymous is ON. NTCR (Integrated Windows Authentication in Windows 2000) can be ON or OFF.

Note: You can administer and setup ODBC via a webbrowser using the remote administration. However you need to know the structure of the database, and the exact form of the Connect String for the System DSN. Selecting the Connect String from the console is conveniently easy and straightforward.
Set up the DSN from the console, or have your ISP do it for you.
