Hosting server details:
Windows Web Server 2008 R2 SP1
It has .Net Framework 2.0 & 4.0 installed.
We have a site based on sitefinity 3.6 SP1.
Currently we want to restrict public access to this site.
So in order to do this did following changes using IIS (7.5) - Web Site - Features List
User Creation :
First we created new user e.g "xyz_access" using Server Manager
We add this user to root folder of the site with default permission (read, list, execute)
Site - IIS Settings
Only Windows Authentication is enabled.
All other are disabled.
IIS Manage Permission
Add new web access user (e.g xyz_access)
Public site :
After above setting, public website works fine and is only accessible through "xyz_access" user credentials.
Sitefinity Admin Area - e.g. http://www.test.com/Sitefinity/admin/default.aspx
When accessing admin area it gives following
This type of page is not served.
Description: The type of page you have requested is not served because it has been explicitly forbidden. The extension '.aspx' may be incorrect. Please review the URL below and make sure that it is spelled correctly.
Requested URL: /Sitefinity/Admin/Default.aspx
Version Information: Microsoft .NET Framework Version:4.0.30319; ASP.NET Version:4.0.30319.1
Please do let us know how we can fix this problem and access sitefinity admin area.
