http://serverfault.com – preface: I am a web dev who knows apache servers quite well, but I have little to no knowledge of IIS or .NET I work with a developer who has been avoiding a request to add a Basic Auth to a staging server running IIS for a while now. Today he finally added it, but added the message IIS does not allow you to use basic auth and forms auth at the same time. I got around this by installing a 3rd party process that lets you use .htaccess / apache modules in front of the iis modules. It's a little more resource intensive on request but for staging it's not really critical. M (HowTos)
