ASP.NET Login Forms

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 06, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
In the past I used Front Page 2002 to create web sites, I am now working with Expression Web 3 for the first time. I'm creating a DWT HTML format web site. My client wants the site to be for 'members' only. Can I incorpoirate ASP.NET into my site so I can insert login forms needed? My ISP supports ASP.NET.Sal

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this? 

Cannot Login with Forms Based Authentication to SharePoint 2010 - Issue with the SecurityTokenServic

Please be advised I have followed the steps on http://donalconlon.wordpress.com/2010/02/23/configuring-forms-base-authentication-for-sharepoint-2010-using-iis7/. I have tried to fix the following issue for a week using different farms and SharePoint 2010 installations, however I am getting the following error when trying to authenticate using Forms Based into a Claims site: Cannot get Membership Provider with name FBARoleProvider The membership provider for this process was not properly configured. You must configure the membership provider in the .config file for every SharePoint process. 1. I am certain the membership provider is configured in the SecurityTokenServiceApplication webservice as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using the SecurityTokenServiceApplication website. 2. I am certain that membership provider is configured in the both the Claims Web Application and Central Admin as I can manage users and roles in IIS7 using their websites. 3. I know the issue is the SecurityTokenServiceApplication service as I had to set <serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true" /> to get the error above. 4. I can log into the Claims Based Application using windows authentication, however I am unable to see the users on the people picker despite that I can see them from the application's site on IIS

Login issue using authentication mode="Forms"

Hi,I am using authentication mode="Forms" with ldap, i manage to login and logour fine but when user 1 is logged and when user2 logs, user1 gets the user2 session. Any idea why this might be happening? Here is some code:     <authentication mode="Forms">            <forms name="login" loginUrl="Login.aspx" />        </authentication>        <authorization>            <allow roles="auditor"/>            <allow roles="approver"/>            <allow roles="user"/>            <deny users="?"/>        </authorization>        <identity impersonate="true"/>protected Boolean ValidateUser(String strUsername, String strPassword)        {            //Return true if the username and password is valid, false if it isn't             &n

Forms Authentication shared between 2 Applications, but still getting directed to login page

my scenario is: Single Sign-on Within a Sub Domain (two virtual directories under the same sub domain)I've setup both sites using the same forms authentication info in my web.config. both sites have the same machine key's as well. I sign into site1. i click a link that directs to site2. site2 still redirects me to the login page, however on the login page I test HttpContext.Current.User.Identity.IsAuthenticated and it returns true. I also tested on site2's login page to pull the ticket's information and it's pulling everything. so it looks like SSO is working as far as sharing the authentication ticket, yet I cannot figure out why it still puts me on the login page? site 1: https://mysub.mydomain.com/site1/ link in site1 that directs to site2: site 1: https://mysub.mydomain.com/site2/mypage.aspx any ideas? appreciate any help someone could give.

Forms Based Authentication - problem with custom master page and login page



I have successfully enabled and set up FBA (Forms Based Authentication) on my SharePoint 2010 Foundation server. The thing is that I need to customize the look and feel of the login page. I have successfully customized the page (and master page) to look the way I want, however, when I try to log in, I get the following error/message on the page:
"Forms Based Authentication on classic Web applications has been deprecated".

What I've done:
Made copies of /_layouts/simple.master and /_layouts/login.aspx and renamed the copies. The markup in the master page is MUCH simpler than the original, but I've kept all the ContentPlaceholders that I don't use (most of them) in a hidden <asp:Panel at the bottom of the page.

I've changed the web.config file:
<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms loginUrl="/_layouts/loginCustom.aspx" />

So, I'm not getting any errors on the page until I try to log in. When I use the default settings (login.aspx and simple.master) it works just fine (but damn that page looks ugly!).

Does anyone know what I might be missing?

Update: I believe the reason it doesn't work is because my custom login aspx is not part of the Claims Based Web Application (because it's sitting

asp.net forms authentication with route handling - error, routes not recognized, returns to login


 I just created a small site with form authentication with route handling.  Without forms authentication, the pages route just fine.  With forms, it returns back to the login page as it is not one of my allowed locations specified in my web.config file.


I know I probably need to write a custom route handler.  Does anyone have an example I can follow for this?  Thanks.

login pages without using Forms authentication



I want to create a website that a user can logon and view their data. They should also be able to logout. I'm wondering how to achieve this WITHOUT using the Membership provider api provided by Microsoft. This is what I think should happen , please advise me if I'm incorrect.

1. user enters name and password and clicks button.

2.If username and password are correct the user is redirected to a webpage with their details.

3.A session is created.

4.The user logouts and the session is deleted.

Is this the way to go about it? If anyone has some similar code that I could reference that would be great

SQL Server 2005 random login failures for windows forms application


One of our VS .NET 2008 windows forms applications runs from multiple client machines. The application randomly has login failures from random machines and from random places in the code. The login works almost every time but about once every fifteen minutes an error shows up in SQL Server error logs from a random user. We are running a clustered SQL Server 2005 system and the database is in 2005 (90) mode.

The following error appears in the SQL Server error logs:

Login failed for 'App_Login'. [CLIENT: XXX.XXX.X.XXX] Error: 18456, Severity: 14, State: 16.

The following error is what the client sees:

Login problem with MySQL forms authentication


I can login in locally using the development server, but after uploading the files- including MySql.Data.dll and MySql.Web.dll - to my hosting server I can't. There is no errors, it just won't login. I can get records from my database, so I know it's not the connection.

Here is my Web.config

<?xml version="1.0"?>

    <clear />
    <add name="LocalMySqlServer" connectionString="server=db_server_name;database=tempdb;user id=user_name; password=my_password" providerName="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" />

    <customErrors mode="Off"/>

    <membership defaultProvider="MySQLMembershipProvider">

        <add connectionStringName="LocalMySqlServer" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true" applicationName="/" requiresUniqueEmail="false" passwordFormat="Clear" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" minRequiredPasswordLength="6" minRequiredNonalphanumericCharacters="1" passwordAttemptWindow="10" passwo

Building a custom Login Page which does not use forms or windows authentication



I would like to build a custom login page which doesnt uses the windows or forms authentication but I am troubled as to how I should do that. I tried to follow the default AccountController.vb file but it doesnt help me much as it doesnt show where its connecting with the database.

What is need is:

Database Table User

columns are userid, email, password

to write a login page that will use my sql server to login rather than using the forms or windows authentication

Routing for Web Forms in ASP.NET 4.0

posted a prototype demonstrating how one could use Routing within Web Forms. This is something you can do today with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1, because of the work we did to separate Routing from ASP.NET MVC. I would have liked to include Web Form Routing as part of the Routing feature when we were working on SP1, but we didn't have the time to do so in a robust manner before SP1 was locked down.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0

Applications have special support in Windows Forms. For starters, you can manage and tailor your application's lifetime, and, when the work flow is disrupted by an unhandled exception, you can choose from several methods of response. Then, there are several application models that you can employ, including Single Document Interface (SDI) and Multiple Document Interface (MDI) applications, each of which can support either multiple-instance or single-instance mode, the former the VS05 default and the latter requiring special consideration. All applications, however, can discover and use a wide variety of information about the system and environment they execute in.

Application Architecture in Windows Forms 2.0-Single-MDI Applications

Consider an MDI application like Microsoft Excel; files opened from the file system (by double-clicking) are all opened as separate child windows within the parent Excel window.7 For the first instance of an MDI application to open a new child window to display the file that was passed to the second instance of the application, the second instance must be able to communicate with the initial instance.

Explained: Forms Authentication in ASP.NET

This module explains how forms authentication works in ASP.NET version 2.0. It explains how IIS and ASP.NET authentication work together, and it explains the role and operation of the FormsAuthenticationModule class.

Using Forms Authentication in ASP.NET - Part 1

Classic ASP developers often had to "roll their own" authentication scheme, however, in ASP.NET much of the grunt work has been taken out. This article outlines how things have changed and how FormsAuthentication can be used to secure a Web site with a minimal amount of code.
