NTFS on workgroup IIS

    We have IIS in DMZ as a standalone server [workgroup] that the web developers access via \\\F$ [LAN -> DMZ -> SMB allow]

    For auditing reasons I have decided to lock this down to individual use, ie they now need to login as themselves rather than a default admin account on the server.

    I have added each user, assigned them RW access on F but unless I add them to the local admins group they cannot log in, but I dont want them to be admins.:dry

    Another quirk is they cannot login using the old \\\F$, they need to now use machine name \\iisserver\f$. I guess this is to do with caching but even after rebooting clients PC it still attempts to connect using old details, is there a way to clear the user cache manually on clients PCs?

    The local admin problem is likely to be because F$ is a default share, designed for admins

    try create a new share such as $webdevs
    and give the webdevs group (you have put them all in a group right?) RW access to that

    I couldnt see the bloody woods for the trees Phoenix, your a star. Still cant work out the caching mularkey, but I guess that wil sort itself over time.

    Do you know what is really odd on this IIS machine? Each time I change a permission it throws all external web users out of our website! They scream at me then log back onto the site and all is well! I dont know too much about .NET & ASP but that isnt normal behaviour for NTFS.

    I am not even changing rights for IUSER so another headscratcher:rolleyes:

    Thanx again
