Access Website - User Login Design And Considerations
Feb 17, 2011
I'm currently messing around in Access to develop a website, or I should say - develop the initial workings of a database system in an environment that I am familiar with. As the .Net environment is the one I am most familiar with for developing, deploying the Access database into the more full-fledged SQL Server environment is a natural step. Now comes the part with ASP.Net that I'm not so familiar with - reconciliating differences between how I am coding and designing my database with the default website project that ASP.Net provides for a basic multi-user website, from which I've noticed is a lot more thorough than any solution I could code up within a reasonable time-frame.
However, this comes at a cost. I have no inkling on how user data is stored within this environment or how to extend it within my own needs. I can make sample data up the wazoo on my laptop, but if I have no idea how to incorporate with a pre-existing framework, it is worthless to me. The reason why I have not considered this until now is the data I have been working on doesn't pertain to the users in a direct fashion. Anyone have experience designing websites that use ASP.Net and maintain user access? What problems, issues, and design considerations might I need to concern myself when developing a multi-user website with ASP.Net in addition to my data?
I want to have a PHP login form on my website. When the user enters a username and password and clicks submit, they should be directed to a remote website logged in (therefore skipping the login form on the remote site).
As mentioned in the title, the remote site is built using ASP.NET.
I've tried to search for a solution this but really not finding.
I've a Gmail account, assume that email@example.com. Now I want to login (as admin) in my website through this account. I know I can use OpenID etc. for that purpose but I want to limit it for just me only. Can I do this? I don't let anyone else to know which service I used to login and what is my address and etc. (Note: My website contains just one and only one login form, for just me, only!)
I need to restrict access to my website by physical PC. When a user signs up I want to be able to restrict access to one machine for that account so it cannot be shared round, if, for example, somebody else in the same office wanted to access the system on their PC they would need a seperate sign in.
I have done some investigation and I "think" the only way is installing an ActiveX component (which isn't an issue that is restricts to IE only) and then read the users MAC address. Am I trying to over complicate things or is that the only way? I realise that MACS can be spoofed but this is not much of an issue.
when a website is entered in a browser it should take to a login page (in localhost) and if the login succeed then the site should be loaded else an error page should be displayed. the login page will be connected to local database. how to do this?
suppose we have two or mor ethan two website .All site ask username and password.Their database is located differnent places.I want to know how i can do this thing that user who authenticated from any site do not need to authenticate again he will pass directly.No authentication nothing like gmail .user who is login do not need to login again for useing orkut he directly go to that site and user of orkut directly go to gmail .In these case it do not ask authentication ike username and password!
I am taking MSDN's walkthrough on Creating a Web Site with Membership and User Login. I have some free time and am taking a look at some topics I'm not 100% clear on. So this isn't for a live site; just for my own edification. I set up a user in the web site administration tool then another one in the CreateUserWizard control. I was surprised that in the control it let me create the 2nd user with the same email id as the 1st so I was looking around at how to prevent this. I found requiresUniqueEmail="true" that goes in web.config, in this block:
Which I believe would be the solution. Is that right? My problem is what do I set all those other attributes to in the block? All I really want is requiresUniqueEmail but it seems I have to specify a connectionstring also but I don't know what this would be. The website is using ASPNETDB.MDF which got created in App_Data after I ran the administration tool for the first time (I believe). So I need to explicitly define a connectionstring to that DB now that I want to require a unique email?
note that i can successfully connect to the db using the user 'SQL2008_736225_aldookandb_user' when i use a remote connection tool, such as sql server managment studio
And you can reproduce this problem, see it live and see the stack trace by doing the following:
1.go to my website [URL] 2.login as username: Teacher1 password: 123456 (Note that you have been logged in successfully) 3. go to the link in the upper right corner where it says (Teacher Page) 4. booooom!
1. go to the website and create an account as a "Teacher" 2. do steps 2 to 4 from above and same problem occurs
Right now, I have all the employees of my company login to an external website using the company id, username and a password. We are trying to integrate it into an intranet portal which should provide seamless access to this website without requiring the user to enter these credentials.
Is there any way of doing this programmatically (.NET C#)? Very similar to screenscraping, Can I simulate the appropriate POST action and then redirect the user to the logged in page?
I have developed an application in ASP.NET 3.5 which utilizes the Membership and Roles Providers and Forms Authentication to manage user access and profiles.
There are various area's of this application that are only to be used by an admin users whom login using their email and password and the rest of the users log in using their telephone number and password via their iPhone.
For simplicities sake, I would like to have two different login pages, one that is formatted for the iPhone and performs the correct validation for users adding a telephone number and the other for the application administrators.
I want to redirect the user to their respective login page based on which folder they are attempting to access. For example say I have an application structure like this
I have a webpage that you pass in an id parameter (via a querystring), which it then uses to fetch data from a database. Typically, a user would navigate to this page from another page that lists only those records that the user has access to. However, if they go directly to the page by typing in the URL in the Address Bar, they can effectively view any record they like. to type something like http://localhost/TestSite/ClientAdmin/ManageLocation.aspx?LocationID=5 into their Address Bar, they can access the database record with the LocationID equal to five - even though they shouldn't have access to it
I have made a web page in which there is login screen when user login it goes next page but my problem is if i directly enter the url of that page it open. I want it should not open unless the user log in...¬†
I came across a very interesting functionality to develop using ASP.net.there is a site wihich usually gets millions of hits everyday and I need to implement a functionality to show the name,date and time(history of users) visited the site. When the user clicks on the History button or tab then the page should display the history of 10 users recently visited the sites.
I am starting a new project in ASP.NET (With silverlight) - I would like to get expert opinion about how to design the data access.I can use DataAccess Layer with SQL helper, but the challenge is every new field that I add needs to be added in the sql helper.I am trying to see if there is a way to design the system, so that it appears in the front end when a new field is added. I don't want to have in the ASPX files (binding in controls) I want to have ability to change items in code. Essentially I am trying to see the best option to have a database application.
i will be responcible for upgrading an IIS web server from the Microsoft .NET framework v2.0 to v3.5.I am wondering if there is anything special i need to know or any caveats i should be aware of before proceding?he site gets a fair number of hits per day and I will be taking it down and performing the upgrade at an off-peak time.Aside from double clicking the installer is there anything i need to know?Will the server need to be rebooted afterwards, does the installer handle all of the configuration changes? etc..
I have the following pages structure in my asp.net 3.5 website. i want if anybody directly access any page of my site as [URL] then it will automatically redirected to [URL] How to do this using vb.net, asp.net
So it is time to use some pages i have to a master page.I have limited usage with master pages so i will write some concerns here so i could get some answers cuz i don't want to start breaking stuff on xmas days.
Of course i will give it a go on my own but it will be good to know what problems must be aware of before i start.If someone knows of them.
So i have a concern about page transfer.
I do a post and on the page to go to i use "<%@ Reference Page="~/thepage.aspx" %>"
Will this go on the master page or on the page to be transferred to?
Also i had an issue with the below command:
Dim result = CType(Context.Handler, _Default) .
Apparently asp is quite funny sometimes and it has blued out the code saying, eerrr, can quite remember but something like the page cannot be found or something.Haha.Very funny.I copy pasted all the code to a new page, deleted the old one and renamed and it worked.So if this happens if i embed the page to a master page, will the copy paste technique will work again or i need to modify the master page also?
Paypal concern.I have read somewhere that you cannot use 2 form tags and master page will give errors.However my approach is using a StringBuilder and doing AppendFormat to finally create an iconic form.So has anyone tried this to a master page?Will it work.
Viewstate.I use viewstate encryption when i use viewstate.Will it work on a page inside the master page?
