We are implementing forms authentication on our site. We noticed that when
we try to lock down a folder whose name as dashes in it (e.g. Secure-Folder)
it is ignored. Is this a known issue?

Thanks.

I suspect this is an asp.net issue, not a classic asp issue, so:
There was no way for you to know it (except maybe by browsing through
some of the previous questions before posting yours - always a
recommended practice), but this is a classic asp newsgroup. ASP.Net is
a different technology from classic ASP. While you may be lucky enough
to find a dotnet-savvy person here who can answer your question, you
can eliminate the luck factor by posting your question to a newsgroup
where the dotnet-savvy people hang out. I suggest
microsoft.public.dotnet.framework.aspnet.
There are also forums at www.asp.net where you can find a lot of people
to help you.

Thanks for the quick response.

I just assume when I set asp they mean .NET. I've posted this in the
correct forum now. Thanks.
