I am trying to secure some folders within a portal. But the Security Settings in File Manager do not really seem to secure anything. Even when set to Administrator only, you can access the files.
The Security Settings in File Manager do not apply to url's. For example, if you create a folder "Portal Root\Private" and set it for Registered Users it does not prevent a url from accessing the file. ie:
You could protect the files by removing the Read property for the folder in IIS Manager; however, this would have to be done on every web site entry in IIS. And, the host manager would be responsible for making theses settings on every portal alias for all
the portals that have protected directories. This could mean making hundreds (or even thousands) of folder settings every a new portal alias is created and pointed to the DotNetNuke Folders.
Is there another way to secure files so DNN can access them based on security settings and prevent direct url access to these files?
