allow write access for logged-in user

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by Andrew Martin, Mar 4, 2007.

  1. I'm using Forms Authentication to secure an admin area of a website. In the
    admin area, I have an .aspx file that updates an unsecured XML file which is
    not inside the admin area. This file should be have anonymous read but not
    anonymous write access.

    Is there a way to accomplish this?

    Thanks!

  2. The account of your worker process (usually NETWORK SERVICE) needs write
    access to that file...
