iis user account and ssh

Threaded View
i am running IIS and have a cgi program that issues a system ssh
command on a remote server.

problem is IIS runs using the built-in iis user, and i dont have the
ssh keys generated for that user.

anybody have any ideas for how i resolve this problem? how do i logon
to the iis account or how do i get the cgi program to execute the
command as another user?


Re: iis user account and ssh

this is from memory so it might not be exact, but it will get you close to
what you are looking for:

1) start IIS admin MMC
2) right-click directory (or virtual directory) where script is. (you might
even be able to select the cgi file itself)
3) select Properties
4) click Security tab
5) click on Edit button of Anonymous section
6) Edit the account you would like to use.

Now IIS will run this folder (or file) under the security context of the
user account you selected.
