    How can I simulate the usage of web.config in classic asp ?

    Can any one help with this ?

    thanks in advance,

  2. What do you want to simulate? Windows authentication? You do that using IIS
    itself. You don't get all of the rich authentication features of ASP.NET
    without rolling your own. My question is, why simulate? Just use ASP.NET...

    I want to grant / deny access to diferent users on several directories of
    the application and my ideia was to put a web.config in each directory with
    the users configuration.
    It's a very large and complex application, that's why I don't port it to

    How can I do this ?

    Thanks in advance,

  4. Well, you don't get web.config for ASP classic, but you can achieve the same
    result directly through the file system - selectively give access to the
    directory to the users or groups you need using NTFS ACLs.

    You can also create an ISAPI filter to do the work (I've
    done this...)
