I need to apply Windows Authentication for my website. But We dont want the user to be enter the User Name and Password in the Popup coming default.We need to provide the user with the input controls in the aspx page,then using the credentials will need to implement the Windows Authentication.Is it Possible to pass the windows authentication username and password from the aspx page , to enable the Windows Authentication
I have been trying to avoid the windows login userid and password window when I use the Windows Authentication mode for a web site. I need to capture the the windows logon user name without prompting for the user id and password and display that on the web site. I had tried almost everything... changed authentication,security setups on IE and IIS etc... still not being able to avoid the window...
We are having an issue with the windows authentication and IIS restart for asp.net application Our environment is an intranet site (an asp.net application ) that uses windows authentication, uses integrated security application pool, physical path credentials are set for a service account, who is admin for sql server, IIS etc. web.config - Connection string has Integrated Security = true, authentication = Windows, and authorization - deny *, allow = security group. Anytime we start - stop service (or restart) (IIS); and hit the website thru some other machine IE, it fails to show the website (401.2), and any subsequent hit to the website doesn't go thru.
However when we start the service, and hit the website on server's (where website is deployed) browser first time then everything works fine for subsequent hits from anywhere as long as authenticated on corp net and member of security group configured in web.config. This behavior however goes away if we uncheck the configuration "Enable Kernel-mode Authentication" on the asp.net application. ( but then Firefox browser stops working with this configuration!!) Why such behavior? In the documentation it states its recommended to keep it enabled. What is recommended way of publishing a website with windows authentication enabled? Any side effects of "Enable Kernel-mode Authentication" being unchecked ( other than what we found for firefox not working) Environment : IIS 7.5 windows 2008 Server R2, VS2008, SQL Server 2008, ASP.NET 2.0
Just to describe the scenario. I have a website. This lives on a webserver. On that webserver is an SQL server. The website connects to this database using windows authentication. I have written a windows form application that connects to the SQL Server on the webserver. This application is being run from a location on out intranet. The Winform application use SQL authentication to connect to the database. The SQL Server didn't have mix mode authentication enabled. So I enabled it. The winform application could now connect to the SQL Server.
This is where it starts getting a little strange.
The Website that was already connecting find using integrated authentication starts failing with:
Login failed for user 'NT AUTHORITYNETWORK SERVICE'
When you are enabling mixed mode authentication, you are adding another authentication method, why would the original Windows authentication fail?
We have developed a website in asp.net using windows authentication and deployed it on the intranet (IIS v6.0). Most of the times, when users try to access this website they are taken straight to the website, but occasionally some users get a prompt to enter their windows username and password. I understand that this could be caused because of several reasons like:
Cached active directory password. Recently active directory password changed. Active directory account locked out. I want to fix this issue for good because it is annoying the users.
I am trying to force to show to the Logon popup when the session is timeout in Integrated Windows Authentication Enabled website. The session_timeout is firing during the session timeout, but the User.Identity.IsAuthenticated is true. How force to use the Windows Logon Screen when the session is timeout.
To work with the ASP.NET 2.0 Membership and Role, we will use Forms authentication for the public Internet. On the other hand, we use Windows authentication for Intranet applications. uestion: In a website with Windows authentication, can I still have some kind ofole management for different groups of the Intranet users? If yes, how?
I'm trying to enable automatic Window authentication working on our ASP.NET Intranet. I've changed the Authentication on our IIS 7.5 server from Anonymous to Windows Authentication Enabled only, and changed the Web.config file for the website to:
The Windows login box appears when accessing the website via IE 8, I enter valid credentials, but the login window keeps reappearing as if it does not accept my credentials. By repeatedly cancelling the login box it disappears, and my login name can be viewed on the website. Is there any possible reason for the login box to keep popping up even though valid credentials are being entered? I've restarted the servers / cleared browser cache etc. Also, ideally I would like the user to enter the login details once in the login box and not be required to reenter login details whenever he reopens the browser.
I set authentication mode to Windows in the web.config and I enable Windows Authentication and disable the Anonymous Authentication in IIS 7 on win 7, but HttpContext.Current.User is always null.It works fine when I host the web app in IIS 6.0.
We have a working version of application (Intranet) with uses Windows Authentication deployed in Windows 2003. The application uses HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name to get the logged-in user. Here impersonate is turned off.Right now, we are move to Windows 2008 RC2 where this Windows Authentication problem arised. I have Digest Authentication and Windows Authentication enabled. And also I have enabled Anonymous Authentication enabled to avoid the Login dialog of IIS in the end-user IE. Now I am getting HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.Name as Empty. When I impersonate using username and password, I am used to login using that user but all the users uses the same user to login.Does any has solution for this?Deployment Server - Windows 2008 RC2 (IIS 7.5)Development - Windows 7 (IIS 7.5)I am new to IIS 7.5. Please give me a solution
I have to invoke SSIS packages from web service in the most secure way. I think that windows authentication will be secure but i am not sure. I do not have much knowledge about how to achieve this and the information on the internet is very distributed.
We use Sharepoint to control our websites. We build the sites, then load them into the sharepoint server. My question is if I use windows authentication, how can I get my role security in my web config file to coencide with the asp.net controls that use the Forms authentication. Is there a differenence? Our security uses a session variable for security but there is no where to set up their permissions except in active directory. I hope this makes sense because I would like to implement the LoginView with Role groups but how can I give them the role="administrator"? Do I have to go into active directory and give them these permissions(would take awhile due to the size of the company)? Or do I have to set up priveladges in the web.config file for each user(difficult I think)?
I'm writing a simple Intranet application using windows authentication. I want to restrict access to Safe/UCantSeeMe.aspx. I am aware of the AuthorizeAttribute, but this only works on methods. I also found a good post on doing this with the MVC pattern, but I'm not using MVC. This can be done with roles in forms based security. I read on MSDN that using windows based security means roles are based on groups, but it doesn't go into any detail. how can I restrict access to Safe/UCantSeeMe.aspx?
I've been having an occasional issue with my website "converting" to site that requires windows authentication. This happens every few months and the only way to fix it to recycle the application pool.This issue is actually happening with a hosting company and my site is on a shared server. I believe I have my own application pool and I'm able to recycle it myself using their web administration tools. Fortunately, I know how to fix and have the ability to do it myself but it is embarrassing when my site now longer works and I have a client email there is a problem. I'm running .NET 3.5 with latest SP.
When i try to view a PARTICULAR page in my web site, it prompts for user name and password. Irrespective of providing proper user name/password and clicking OK or directly clicking Cancel button, the page is getting loaded properly. I am not sure why the authentication screen appears!!! It happens only for that particular page. Initially I thought it could be with file permission but copy pasted another page (which works fine) and renaming it doesn't solve the problem.
I copied the source from the browser for that particular page and saved it as HTML. When i try to open the HTML file, it prompts for authentication.
I disabled the Integrated Windows Authentication in IIS and it works fine.
I want to know if this kind of authentication is possible.
We have an Active Directory account and that account we are using to log in to windows. I have a simple system that needs authentication using the IIS log in box (i dont know what do you call this but what I know is it only comes out when Anonymous user is unchecked in the IIS configuration.) Now, I want this box to appear before my page and the user will be authenticated and be compare to the user who logged in to the windows. If the user who have been authenticated is the same as the user who logged in to the windwos then we will let him in if not he must be denied in accessing the page.
The first problem I have in my mind is how to code it in asp.net to make an authentication when he will try to access my page.
Second is, let us say we have succeeded to show the authentication box, how can I get the username from the log in box and compare it to the user who logged on in windows. Of course we can get the user id of the logged in user from the windows using User.Identity.Name but how about the username from the log in box.
Note: I will not use log in forms even using https. Just the log in provided by the IIS according to the configuration.
IIS:Annoymous login is disabled, Windows authenication is enabled.
SQL server:userA is added as a user to the database.
IIS and SQL server are on different server. Running as userA on another computer, I try to access the website. The website log told me the website was trying to login to the SQL server with NT AuthorityAnnoymous despite I specified to use integrated security and Annoymous login is disabled in IIS.
