securing documents in IIS6 RRS feed

  • User-225121172 posted

    I have a directory within my applicaiton called Docs. The docs folder has bunch of documents like docA.pdf, docB.pdf and so on. If i goto the properties of that document and set the file security to "Enable Anonymous Access", then any user without authentication can view the document by typing this in the address bar http://test.com/Docs/docA.pdf. If i disable anonymous access, then it prompts for authentication. The problem is i am using custom membership provider and how can i configure IIS to use that membership provider. I can see options for "Integrated Windows Authentication", "Basic Authentication" and so on. But this will not help users authenticate against my custom membership provider.

     Thanks in advance.
