Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to disable anonymous access for a specific file in a folder in IIS 7 , and give access to a specific user only.

The scenario is this: Disable anonymous access for a file. Question is, why doesn't IIS 7 show any options for files? why is it only for folders?

In IIS 6 this was an easy task and we could allow windows authentication for some user while disabling the anonymous access for that file.

Any help would be appreciated.
