8 Comments on Secure Folders in WebsitePanel

  1. Anonymous says:

    It is sufficient to enable secured folders to have the control panel disabling Windows/Basic authentication and enabling integrated mode.

  2. This article says to create the user first and then create the folder. What if I need to secure a folder that already exists?

  3. Mike Moore says:

    I followed the steps in both articles, but still cant get results. Authentication window opens, but does not accept/recognize any userid or password.

  4. Mike Moore says:

    I got it to working. I set it up using my MAC instead of my Windows machine. Don’t ask me why, but it all works fine now.
