Re: iis7 and password protecting a web directory

Sorry late reply here ... but what you are trying to do should work. What is getting logged for the requests by "non authorized" users?

It states error 401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied to invalid credentials. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That doesn't quite make sense, this is an error indicating the user doesn't have access but yet in your OP you say anyone can access. Also, this isn't from the IIS log file, and a 401 error will have a sub status code usually of a "1" (typically means a bad username or password was supplied) or a "3" (the user does not have NTFS permissions to the content requested).

Can you paste a snippet of your IIS log file that shows an access attempt? This will tell us the username that was granted access.
