ASP.NET Authentication
I want a public access page in a secure app

Hello all,

I've created an Admin Project for a large Solution that im working on. Part of the Solution is a modified browser that downloads XML as a local backup. If the system ever goes down the browser will switch to the local files (informing the user of course).

My problem is that I want to be able to configure the modifed browser (with reconnection times, server addresses etc) by having it automatically access a page in my Admin Project. This page also gives it details of the XML files it needs to download, each browser gets different details.

However I can't access the Configuration page automatically as it is requiring me to login. I did have the Configuration page in a open project but felt that it belonged in my Admin project. How can I make this page accessable to all but still in my Secure App virtual directory? I tried a sub-directory with its own web.config but you can't overwrite a root web.config unless you change the machine.config to allow it. Which im not allowed to do :)

Any ideas?
