C# - Using .net Credentials To Log In From A WinForms Application

Aug 9, 2010

We have an ASP.net application but some screens are deemed too slow to use by our users.As a result, we are trying to provide a WinForms-based alternative to those data-input centric screens so we can use richer controls like Grids with immediate screen updates and feedback for the user.

Ideally, I would like the users to login to the WinForms application using the same credentials they use in the ASP.net application?

Is it possible?I've found this post ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1172069/net-authentication-for-both-web-and-winforms ) but it isn't really answering the question from my point of view... We are not using WebServices, or WCF at the moment and do not plan to use it unless it is really the only way to achieve this.

Security :: Accessing .NET WCF Authentication Service In Winforms Application?

Jul 30, 2010

I'm trying to use ASP.NET WCF Authentication Service from a Winforms Application.

I am referring to this article as a tutorial.

for silverlight clients, the WCF Auth service works well.

but for Winforms Apps,

[Code]....the AuthenticationServiceClient.IsLoggedIn() always returns false even after login.

what is the cause of this and is there another approach I should take when I leverage ASP.NET authentication from Winforms?

Security :: Custom Role Provider In WinForms And Web Application?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a custom role provider class that is currently being used by a web application. We are now in the process of migrating several windows applications from VB6 to VB.Net. From preliminary research, I understand that I can use the custom role provider in win forms as well and came across Client Application Services. I understand how the Client Application Services is setup, but can't seem to find how the custom role provider code will be shared between the web apps and the windows apps.

Passing Windows Credentials Through Web Application To WCF?

May 28, 2010

I have a .Net web application which successfully takes on the callers windows credentials (Thread.CurrentPrincipal is my windows user).

Within that app, I call to a WCF service, but my windows identity isn't passed up. Regardless of what I put in the binding:

NetTcpBinding binding = new NetTcpBinding();
binding.Security.Mode = SecurityMode.Transport;
binding.Security.Transport.ClientCredentialType = TcpClientCredentialType.Windows;

Security :: LDAP Throws Invalid Credentials With Valid Credentials Supplied?

Feb 1, 2011

I'm working on an ASP.NET project for the first time in about three years; in the meantime I've been working with Python/Django, PHP and Obj-C. Anyways, picked it right back up... except something that is totally killing me right now, and I have a feeling it must be staring me in the face:

I'm trying to bind to an LDAP server, for the purpose of authenticating users. The way it works here is, you bind on your own credentials, use that to find the Distinguished Name of the user you're authenticating, then you bind again on their DN and their password. If the bind is successful, the password was correct and the user can be authenticated.

Here's the problem - the first bind (on the fixed credentials, the ones with the ability to search for users and their subtrees) works fine. The search works fine. The second bind fails, no matter what, with the LDAP error INVALID_CREDENTIALS. This happens even when completely valid credentials are supplied.

Here's the code, with the usernames and passwords redacted, of course...

Security :: Calling A Java Webservice Using Credentials From Application?

May 19, 2010

I am using Asp.Net application for calling an existing Java webservice. Recently the web service is configured with Security certificates. Now I need to call the webservice using "https:URL .." and by passing the credentials i.e. UserId and Password.

When I call the webservice using [URL] I get the below error. Is the change in my code is causing this error?

Error:Client found response content type of 'text/html; charset=iso-8859-1', but expected 'text/xml'. The request failed with the error message: --

500 Internal Server Error

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. contact the server administrator, you@your.address and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

C# - Starting A Console Application From .net Using Authenticated User Credentials?

Mar 9, 2011

I have the following asynchronous controller actions which allows me to start a console application on a remote server. My issue is with regards to the permissions and authentication. I have tried the following, which in my understanding allows the app.Start(valuationDate) to run as the impersonated user. The reason for this is that the console application needs to access network resources and the user of this web app will have the required access rights. (As a side note, the console app runs as a scheduled task without error)

The issue I suspect is that the console app is still run under the IIS app pool identity which causes network resource "Access Denied" errors. The console application itself starts, but the restricted access of the IIS user account causes the failure.

I have tried changing the AppPool identity to run as an authorised user and the process executes correctly. I am hoping for a solution that does not require me to change the AppPool identity on the server.How can I do to start the console application using the authenticated users details?

Controller Actions:

public void RunAsync(DateTime valuationDate)

C# - How To Integrate Sharepoint Document Into Web Application And Adding Credentials For External Users

Sep 9, 2010

Being new to integrating sharepoint documents into web applications I am struggling with the following task, so anyI have a page in my web application that needs to display a document from sharepoint.I use the appropiate sharepoint web service to get a list of all the documents in the sharepoint list, I then pick out the one I would like to retrieve and get the path to the document so i would end up with something like:

Within our network I can do following:
"src"] = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["SharepointUrl"] + _filePath;

This would display the document in iframe... problem I have is coming from outside the network the sharepoint site can't be accessed (due to firewalls etc). We do have a vpn back to our network on the external server our web application sits on. If i was to use the document url in a browser on the server I am prompted for credentials and then get to view the document.Is there a way for the web application to use the vpn, use credentials i give (e.g through impersonation) to access the document and display it to exernal clients?

3rd-party UI Libraries For WinForms, WPF, MVC, Etc. Are Best?

Jan 1, 2010

I work with many diverse technologies, and don't possess the time to evaluate every single UI framework, so I'd appreciate hearing other coders' experiences with various frameworks.

The stuff I've worked with so far (and my perceptions):

WinForms: DevExpress (love the looks, hate the API and bloat), Krypton (free!, looks good, but limited), Telerik (don't like the looks)WPF: have only used WPF Themes pack. Asp.Net: Telerik MVC Controls (love it), jQuery UI (looks great)

Winforms - JQuery UI Datepicker / Doesn't Work

Sep 6, 2010


<input id="datepicker" type="text" />

Where the id = datepicker tells the javascript to attach all the datepicker code to the form element, how do I turn this into a server control?

For example:

<input runat="server" id="datepicker" type="text" />

Doesn't work because ASP.net generates it's own ID's.


<asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="dateTo" class="datepicker"></asp:TextBox>

Renders as

<input name="ctl00$mainContent$dateTo" type="text" id="ctl00_mainContent_dateTo" class="datepicker" />

And doesn't work!
