    we use http commander from here
    Http: Commander
    works well enough, is stable (has been running without problem for a few years) and is reasonably cheap in the grand scheme of things

    ASP has nothing to do with it. Authentication is handled by WebDav.

    Well in IIS you can set Directory Security on the folders. We have basic authentication here but our site is over SSL.

    Assuming your using a WebDAV client (like webfolders in XP).
