Prompt for Password in a Separate Dialog

Question:
I want to display the “Enter Network Password” box when a user accesses my site. I can display an ActiveX control on my HTML page (ObjectID Tag) but it appears embedded. I want it to appear on top of my HTML page. Is it a property of Browser?

Answer:
You can set the security of any page or any directory on your site to make this happen. In Internet Information Server Management Console, right click on the directory or page and choose Directory Security. Then request for Basic Authentication. This will pop up a password box when a user tries to access the directory or the page. Only valid users registered on the Web server can gain access.
