Default deploying your asp.net application

I am just about to deploy my first asp.net application and i have just stumbled on this question.

Which files will i need to put on the webserver,which ones dont i,and which ones do i really need to SECURE

they are several file extensions (*.config, *.resx, *.cs, *.aspx e.t.c)

Also, how can i secure these files in a directory that asks for user name and password when it is accessed through the net??

In general you need to deploy everything except source code files (.cs or .vb) and project files (.sln, .csproj, etc). However, if a webpage refers to source file using the "src=" attribute in the page directive, then that source file also has to be deployed.

Visual Studio will deploy the correct files for you if you use Project..Copy Project to deploy the files to a webserver using the FrontPage Server Extensions.

Most ASP.NET file extensions are not permitted to be downloaded. This assumes there are no security holes on the web server :-)
