First post here, so sorry if I'm asking irrelevant questions .

I have inherited a site which has a lot of database integration and some fairly complicated security around it. I am looking for a way of protecting certain admin pages and showing hyperlinks on some pages, only to privileged users, without non privileged users having to use a login page

Does anybody have a suggestion for a simple way to get around this problem, maybe reading off NT logons, so that I can manage those who have restricted access and unrestricted access fairly simply?

Many thanks
