Hello,<BR><BR>I am trying a few things with permissions as a test. I have an ASP page that redirects a user to a page in FolderX. I went ahead and removed all permissions from that folder, but added the IIS user account (IUSR_machinename). The page still redirects fine. However, if I remove the IIS user account, but add a group that contains the IIS user account, the redirect does not work. Page access is denied. Any idea why the group does not take effect? The machine is not a domain controller. It&#039;s a standalone 2000 server.<BR><BR>You might be wondering why I am doing this, but it&#039;s a long story. I am just curious as to why adding a group with the IIS account is not the same as adding the IIS account itself.<BR><BR>Thanks!
