How to configure a Virtual Directory VA
An IIS site can add a Virtual Directory, for example:
If my base account is located under the path:
In my site - I have a real path to:
My required Virtual Directory is "temp" which will point to images\1\
I will be redirect to: www.home.co.uk\images\1\
Add a Virtual Directory VA with the following settings:
Virtual Directory Name "temp"
Relative Directory Path "images/1"
Adjust your File System Permissions and IIS Permissions as you wish.
Protect the Virtual Directory with a password:
You can remove the anonymous user option - Anonymous User Permitted. This will protect the Virtual Directory with a username and password.
All VDS users (like email accounts users) can use their name and password to get through the Virtual Directories.
