    No, you don't need to use the web.config file to limit access to a subset of
    possible users. However, it would certainly help folks answer your question
    if you were to explain how you are attempting to limit access. " I take the
    Everyone group away from the permissions" could mean a lot of things, one of
    which might be modification of the authorization list in a web.config file.

    My own first guess was that your site is set up to impersonate the client
    user, and you're limiting access via Windows permissions on the files
    themselves. If so, does "taking away" the Everyone group mean removing it
    from the access control list or explicitly denying it permissions to the
    files? If the former, then you'll need to grant access to some group to
    which your desired users belong. If the latter, you'll need to remove the
    denial since it's actively blocking all members of the Everyone group (incl.
    members of admin groups) from acquiring permissions they would otherwise be
