how you want to protect a particular page? Say if user want to access a page then it ask for use name and password? Is it for every time or once in a session. Clearly explain your problem, then you have more chances of getting the answer

In my site has a intro that is the index page but after protected pages it is not working.

1 solution

use the following approach

<location path="<the path you want to bypass authentication>">
                <allow users="*"/>

in the web.config file

I don't to allow all page for all user In my site has a intro that is the index page but after password protection it is not working.

Group the pages in which you don't want the user to be autheticated in a folder, and place the relative path the the "path" value section.
Secondly I believe the intro contains a flash file or anything which is also getting restricted by the authentication, so detect the resource file and place it in a directory and create another location tag, just like stated one to by pass authentication for the directory.
