You need to create a new <location> in your web.config and point it to your
folder. Configure forms auth for that location only

: The authentication section of Web.config is like:
: <authentication mode="Forms">
: <forms name="justaname"
: path="/"
: loginUrl="login.aspx"
: protection="All"
: timeout="20">
: </forms>
: </authentication>
: All I want to manage is to allow anonymous acces for the whole website,
: except the content of the subfolder "/login".
: Any help is appreciated, thanks!
