    OK heres the deal, In the school we will be teaching web design soon using FrontPage and there is a need for the kids to be able to publish there work so others can view it across the network.

    What I'm after is some advise or resources on setting up IIS for this kind of scenario as ideally each child that needs to publish their pages would have their own directory within the web root that only they can publish to but the other kids can view.

    Thanks in advance.
    :D

    Our kids are able to do this, but I'm not sure how it is set up. I shall ask the Boss when we go back in 3 weeks

    Si

    you could configure the site with integrated authentication, have a separate folder for each child with permissions set to allow everybody to see but only them to update. One gotcha with integrated authentication is to make sure that the browsers are configured to bypass the proxy for that site or it may not work.

    which bits do you need help with Si? Just the authentication side or the whole lot?

    All of it Phil, I've only ever installed IIS and setup the default site for a basic website. :D

    Well I asked the boss how he did this and the short answer was he wrote some scripts and used Linux/Apache. :? Said he tried using IIS but is was far too time consuming.

    That was about as forthcoming as he was busy redesigning part od the network :eek:

    Sorry I can't be much more help .
