    I ran into this problem on my Windows 2003 Server running Plesk 7.0.3. When I created a protected directory and user through Plesk, everything seemed to work fine. However, when I went to check the directory, it let me to the files - no request for credentials. I read a few posts on the forum where some of you guys had this problem last year without resolution.

    After my recent run-in with this problem, I was able to resolve the issue per instructions from Plesk. It's actually quite easy to fix:

    Login to your server (through rdp or vnc)
    Open IIS Manager
    Go to websites
    Right click on the domain you need to enable protected directories for and go to properties
    Select the ISAPI Filters tab
    Add mapping.dll as a filter from c:\program files\swsoft\plesk\isapi
    Close the properties
    Restart the domain

    Thats pretty much it. Like I said - easy - unless you have a ton of domains.
    Note: Installing this filter at the server level as a global ISAPI filter will NOT work!!
