Restrict access to Directory

Restrict access to Directory

Hi there,
I was wondering where the Information is on Restricting Access to a Directory. I am on a 2003 IIS 7 Server and would like to restrict download files (PDF). What I need to do is create a login and logout page so that users can login and download 1 or all of the "PDF" files.

Currently I have on web page that list all of the "PDF" files in a table view, do I just need to restrict that page and set a flag on the Server to only allow script access? Or, do I need to use some function in Security Assist to restrict the Directory?

Thank you in advance for your help.
Fred

Security Assist cannot restrict access to PDF files or a directory.

You should store your PDF files in a directory that is outside of the web root so that they cannot be accessed by a URL like:
filename.pdf


You can then create your download page using Digital File pro to do the download and use SecurityAssist to restrict access to the download page.
