This step-by-step article describes how to use the Permissions Wizard to create or edit a template and then apply the template to a folder. Apache uses .htaccess files and Directory directives in the main Httpd.conf configuration file. You can easily copy these files and directives around your site to set the same values across multiple folders. There is no equivalent in Internet Information Services (IIS). However, the IIS Permissions Wizard in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit can create templates that you can apply these templates to different folders. You can use this method to emulate the .htaccess functionality for multiple folders.
Right-click the folder or Web site, point to All Tasks, and then click Permission Wizard.
Click Next to continue the Permission Wizard.
Click Select new security settings from a template, then click Next.
The "Site Scenario" page appears. Click the template you want to apply to the site from the list, and then click Next.
Select the folder to which you want to apply the template, and then select the options to apply to the folder. Note that you can set the folder only to update from the template or to completely overwrite the existing settings for a folder.
Review the security settings that are selected for your site. Click Next.
