Forms Authentication - .NET Auth, Exclude Root & Allow Anonymous?

Sep 23, 2010

We have a weird issue found during setting up a new Windows 2003 Server with IIS6.0 & ASP.NET 2.0, our site is built using ASP.NET forms authentication with general authorization to deny access to all users & allow explicitly to static, home pages etc, -- web.config setting for forms auth looking as below:

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="appNameAuth" path="/" loginUrl="~/Pages/Users/Login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="60" defaultUrl="~/Pages/Inner.aspx">

if it is possible to use a WCF Dataservice as the MemberShipProvider for a forms auth application. I have written code for a provider (below), but I do not know what to do as far as a connection string, or any other web.config properties.
Please Help!!! Here is the code for my provider, anytime it says Odbc that is because I based this off of the custom Odbc provider on the msdn site. The only ACTUAL references to any odbc connection are in the comments:

Security :: Forms Auth - Losing Auth State?

Feb 23, 2011

Been scratching my head on this one today quite a bit. Time to ask the guru's.Implementing your basic Forms Auth for a 2.0 web app in conjunction with SQL Membership Provider and Role Provider. Web.Config from virtual directory root


All other subdirectories do not contain web.config files but rather wanted them to just work off inheritence from the root web.config. Upon publishing of this setup - I am having one hell of a time maintaining the user 'authenticated' state. (Not sure if that's the best explanation of what is going on.. but)

IIS 7.0 - Every Site Suddenly Redirecting Root Request To Forms Authentication?

Apr 30, 2010

Suddenly, IIS 7.0 is redirecting every request for the root of any domain hosted on the box to ~/Account/Logon, which is our Forms Authentication redirect. Additionally, some JavaScript and image requests are being similarly redirected, but not other aspx pages.

EDIT: It turns out that something has gone wrong with the disk permissions. Can anyone point me to the way things are supposed to be in Windows Server 2008 for a standard ASP.Net installation? The disk permissions are out of whack now.

How To Get Anonymous Authentication Token For Profile Support

Jun 14, 2010

So I have an Web Application (Not Web Site) that I am trying to support profiles for anonymous users. I have a form and I want anonymous users to be able to enter their name and email only once, and have that information automatically accessible on the next load for them.

In my Web.config I have anonymous ID setup like so:

<anonymousIdentification enabled="true" cookieless="AutoDetect" />

I have my profile section setup like this:

<profile defaultProvider="SqlProvider" enabled="true" inherits="QA_Web_Tools.UserProfile">
<clear />
<add connectionStringName="QAToolsConnectionString" name="SqlProvider"
type="System.Web.Profile.SqlProfileProvider" />

Finally, due to my app being a Web App and not a Web Site, I am using the profiles via this custom object:

public class UserProfile : ProfileBase
public static UserProfile GetUserProfile(string username)
return Create(username) as UserProfile;
public static UserProfile GetUserProfile()
return Create(Membership.GetUser().UserName) as UserProfile;
public string FullName
get { return base["FullName"] as string; }
set { base["FullName"] = value; }
public string BuildEmail
get { return base["BuildEmail"] as string; }
set { base["BuildEvmail"] = value; }

This code is based off of this reference. The issue is that that code does not support anonymous users, or if it does I don't know how. I can't use the GetUserProfile() method with no parameters because if the user is anonymous, Membership.GetUser() is null. I could pass in the anonymous ID token into the first GetUserProfile(string username) method but I cant' find any way to get the anonymous ID token for the current user. Does anyone know how to get this information? Google doesn't seem to be returning useful results.

Security :: Windows Authentication For Anonymous Users?

Feb 14, 2011

I am using windows authentication in my web application. All we need is when the application will be executed it will launch login.aspx page. If users put correct userid and password(checked from active server directory) it will be redirected to a difference page. But if any unauthenticated user tries to access any other page in the application by typing the Url on the address bar it will be again redirected to the login page. We have to do this by changing our web.config file.I can achieve this using form authentication but not windows. But our requirement is windows. The requirement is very basic but all effort is just not working.

Most of the time, it works like a charm, but once in a while, the browser does prompt a enter credentials popup...The whole site is configured for Windows Authentication, but some pages and folders are set to use anonymous authentication. This is done using the location tag in web.config.What could be the reason for this?

C# And Anonymous Types - Iterate Through A DataTable While Manually Building An Anonymous Type

Jan 18, 2010

I am currently implementing a client-side paging solution using ASP.NET, jQuery and JSON.

I have been following the excellent article from encosia:

In my Web Method I retrieve my data from the database as a DataTable:

DataTable categoryProducts = ProductViewerAccess.GetCategoryProducts
("AA", 4, 0, Page.ToString(), out howManyPages, "FALSE", 0, "CostPrice", "asc", destinationList);

I then retrieve the data from the DataTable into an anonymous type:

var feeds =
from feed in categoryProducts.AsEnumerable()[code]....

This all works great.

However, I would like to extend the code to perform some evaluation checks (e.g., check that various columns in the DataTable are not NULL) and other pre-processing (e.g., call various functions to build the image URL based on the image ID - which is another column in the DataTable not shown in the code fragment) before I return the resulting rows of the DataTable as an anonymous type to the client-side.Basically, I want to iterate through the DataTable, perform the evaluation checks and pre-processing, while building my anonymous type manually as I go. Or maybe there is a better way to achieve this?

Web Forms :: ScriptManager Uses Website - Root Instead Of Application Root Directory

Jan 27, 2010

I ran into the following issue when trying to run a test website on IIS 7.5 (Windows Server 2008 R2 DatacenterEdition). The web-app is configured to run with framework version 3.5 in a .Net 2.0 app pool. Also the framework 4.0 beta 2 is installed on the server. The application named 'TestPfade' is located under the website's root named 'Default'. It is not only a virtual directory but defined as an application. The folder structure looks like this: The markup of the sole document reads as follows:


When viewed in a browser the image gets shown because the given relative path is correctly resolved to 'images/Lighthouse.jpg' but the paths to the ajax-framework resources also include the application's root folder and therefor aren't found: 'src="/TestPfade/WebResource.axd?d=1bX...'

Windows And Anonymous Authentication Side By Side?

Nov 24, 2010

If the users come to the web site out of domain then the user must fill a login page and the credentials he provided must be authenticated from a custom credential store. If the user is an Active Directory user, he must be directed to the resource he wants without asking for credentials.

If I enable both Anonymous Auth and Windows Auth for the web server, Anonymous Auth comes first and even the user is an Active Directory user I can't access his domain information.
