Windows 2000, IIS (whatever came with win 2000)
Right now we have clients logging in to our staging server by following a link like this:
There are permissions set on that clientname1 directory so they are prompted to authenticate.
Would there be a way to have all clients use the same url and then IIS decide where they should go based on their login (which always corresponds to the folder name)?
clientname1, pass whatever
then redirected (or just served content from) to http://stage.domain.com/clientname1/

Do not reinvent the wheel, unless your new wheel works that much better.

You might be able to use asp for what you want.
There is a servervariable for auth_user or something similar, and I think this will get set when your users authenticate.
You could inspect this after a login and then redirect to the appropriate folder.
