Moss public facing site login

  Asked By: Tapasvi    Date: Jun 15    Category: MOSS    Views: 2276

is there a way to completely prevent login for a public facing Moss site? I have extended the web application so I have separate authentication providers and what I would like to do is prevent any login ability to the public facing side and all content authoring be completed through extended web app which is only available internally.

I wonder if in the Web.config file you could explicitly revoke login  for all users, with something like <deny users="*" />.

Using the example from the following MSDN link:http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8aeskccd.aspx

<allow roles="admins"/>
<deny users="*"/>

Haven't ever tried it on a SharePoint site. Let us know if it works.
