comment How to assign permissions to ApplicationPoolIdentity account
@motobói That opens some security concerns and sharing between all sites. It's possible but not preferred.

comment IIS7.5 - prevent recycling when changing default document
Chris, that's a good question. disallowRotationOnConfigChange is for app pool settings only and not for web.config, so an appdomain recycle still occurs even if disallowRotationOnConfigChange is applied. There is a File Change Notification (FCN) registry change that can prevent web.config changes from causing an appdomain recycle, but then the changes themselves won't be picked up either until the app pool is manually recycled, so I don't believe that would be the solution for this situation.

comment IIS7.5 Password Protected Directory Exceptions
I don't know Plesk really so I can't speak into that part, but in IIS, you can open IIS Manager, navigate to the site -> authentication -> click on anonymous -> disable. That essentially password protects it, but it allows back end code to still access the site. If your API breaks after this, then find out the file of the API and specifically turn on the anonymous user for just that path.

comment iptables with vlans and duplicate IPs
Thanks James (and MikeyB). I'll try that out. This situation is a lab situation where the labs are pre-configured before I obtain them, and they need to keep their same IPs. They are a set of a 1/2 dozen lab machines that need to inter communicate. That's why they can't change, but why they need to have identical IP addresses. There will be more than just 2 though. Two was just for the example. I could drop an Ubuntu device in each network/lab, which I believe is what you're saying. I've set the project aside for now but when I get back to it, this is what I'll try.

How are you password protecting the folder, and how is the API call made?

Excellent, glad you got it working! Troubleshooting is all about eliminating the leads until you get to the core issue. Nothing is a waste!
