I have a pc in office running on win 98.in this i am running a webserver (recently i started this).I have designed it with windows front page(i dont know java which i have started learning).Its running very fine and I added lot of features with front page.
All in the LAN can have access to it currently.
Now I want to give authentication to the people in the LAN with unique username and password in to Different sections of the web site.I dont worry about the security but can I do it atleast partially will be helpful to mee many ways.Hope I am clear.
First of all , kindly explain , that how are you running a server on a Win 98 machine ?? Frankly speakin, i didn't think it was possible to have servers runing on a 98 machine. Also , u say u have designed it in Front page ??.... I think there is some confusion here...kindly elaborate more on as to what exactly u have done .
In add/remove programswindows setup i enabled internet tools and online services and by that i got a web folders icon in my computer.In that i created(named) a default page with front page which opens with my lan ip in the lan.From there i gave other links to various pages.
This is what i have done.I was suggested by my colleague to do this and it worked. (He further could not help mee bcos he works on linux and knows not much on windows operating systems)
well, MS Personal Web Server is a deprecated product and lacks flexibility - features (actually windows 98 are quite obsolescent too). My advise is to move to
and if possible windows 2000 or at least NT (since you propably want to stick to the windows family). To the subject now, PWS doesn't support what I understood that you want (per-directory access control). As a matter of fact, from what I've found searching, PWS under win98 doesn't support any kind of authentication (under windows NT it could be configured to use authentication but in a far from ideal implementation).
