I’m not sure if this is the proper forum for this, but here goes…
I’m trying to set up IIS on W2K but getting nowhere. Does anyone know of a
more easy to follow set of instructions than the one on microsoft.com?
All I want to do is make a photo archive accessible to the internet, but
with restrictions so that people can only view the links I post, and not get
into the actual parent directories. I think this makes sense…
I want to give full access (parent directories) to TWO specific IPs. Is
this possible? Everyone else must be restricted.
Also, I hear IIS is very unsafe compared to Apache. Is this true? I read a
lot of conflicting opinions on this.

There is microsoft.public.inetserver.iis - good group Just don't enable directory browsing for your directories. By default, it is off anyway. Sure, in the IIS snap in in the MMC, pull up the properties of your directory, go to the Directory Security tab, click Edit in the "IP address and domain name restrictions," switch the default to DENY access, and then add the IPs that are allowed. (If you're hosting this on W2K Pro as opposed to W2K Server, I don't believe this option will be enabled. You need Server.) A server is as safe as the administrator is diligent, regardless of the OS or software. Ray at home
