anonymous site prompts for authentication when using https

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 30, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I have extended a site in SPS 2010 and made it anonymous. When I go to the site http://site, it is okay. But when I go to the same site via https://site, I get prompted. What could be the reason. I am using a certificate from another site, so the certificate name does not match the site url, could that be the reason? I will be getting a certificate shortly.

Also on the same site, when I go into site settings via https:/site, I get a Microsoft Sharepoint foundation error. But I do not get the same error if I go to site setting using http://site. What could be wrong?

Lastly, is it possible to change the IP of the site to match the certificate url.

Please advise.

SharePoint 2010 Claims Based Authentication - anonymous site is prompting for CBA auth when opening

Hi, I have CBA setup successfully on my sites.  One site is setup for anonymous access and I have disabled "client integration" on that web application. I have a list of MS Office documents on a wiki.  When I click on one I am asked to either save or open or cancel.  Saving works fine but when I choose open, it launches the associated MS Office app.  I am then prompted for a login from CBA.  I can click cancel and the logon screen appears again.  After clicking cancel the 2nd time the document appears in the MS Office app, Word in this case. My question is how do I prevent my users from being prompted for a CBA login when clicking on these files and opening them in the native app on their machine?      --TR

Problems with Forms Authentication in DD 4 site


Hello,  I am seeing a strange problem with Forms Authentication in my DD site.   A user logs into and can view/edit/delete data all day, but when they execute a Custom Filter against data (for example , a control DynamicData/Filters/CustomerLastNameSearch.ascx ) then the site auth fails, and redirects to the log in screen.

in web.config I have

     <authentication mode="Forms">
            <forms name=".Star" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" protection="All" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" path="/" timeout="43200" cookieless="UseCookies" />     

Offhand, I am thinking two things : that DynamicData/Filters path requires some special handling for some reason, or the control extension ascx is causing auth to get confused.   Has anyone else experienced this or have any suggestions?  Thanks!

Who Goes There?: Upgrade Your Site's Authentication with the New ASP.NET 2.0 Membership API


Here Dino Esposito and Andrea Saltarello cover the plumbing of the Membership API and its inherently extensible nature, based on pluggable providers. To demonstrate the features, they take an existing ASP.NET 1.x authentication mechanism and port it to ASP.NET 2.0, exposing the legacy authentication mechanism through the new Membership API.

Anonymous Web Site receives "The request failed with HTTP status 401: Unauthorized"


I set up a test website on my local box and was able to access sharepoint search using the querySearch web service from SP.  After I got it all working properly I transferred the code to the target website that is set up with anonymous access for all people on the fab floor.  However from this website I keep getting the 401 error.  It can't be SP because the same code worked from my local website "localhost".  Any suggestions?  we don't want to have to have the fab people log in so we can't not have the box anonymous.  I would appreciate any suggestions very much!!!

C# - Creating web client for automating user activity on a HTTPS site

I've been wracking my brain for a couple of weeks on this.  I need to create a web client (I don't want to use the webBrowser control because I need this to be as lightweight as possible) to log in to a secure web site, and then effectively click links and fill in fields to get the data that would normally be displayed in the web browser.  I'm then going to parse the data and perform other actions with it. I have been working with HttpWebRequest and HttpWebResponse and many permutations of suggestions I have found while Googling my issue, but I can't get rid of my problem:  Sometimes when I effictively click the ultimate link that I need to click to get to my data, I get what I am looking for.  However, MOST of the timel, I get a response page that tells me my connection timed out and that I need to log in again.  I have tried messing with cookies and such, but to no avail. I know it's good form to post my code, but it is so sloppy and screwed up right now from tweaking this and trying that, that I'd rather not take the approach of fixing what's there, rather I'd like to start with solid, clean code to begin with. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, ALo

MOSS Site with Basic Authentication and variations does not work on one node

Hi, We have one MOSS Farm with two nodes, on this we have several sites. For one specific site we have Basic Authentication and variations enabled in it, on one node site works fine. When we browse it pops-up for credentials and once credentials are provided it works fine and properly redirect to source variation home page. But on the other node when we browse the site it pops-up asking for credentials then after providing correct credentials it again asks for credentials twice and then it throws the following error : Access denied.   You do not have permission to perform this action or access this resource. And if we directly put the source site homepage url it throws following error: 401 UNAUTHORIZED We have checked the Alternate Access Mappings for the site and it is perfectly fine, if i enable windows authentication on the defected node the site works fine. This issue is just like pain in the neck still no resolution, please help us to resolve this issue. Regards, Jasjeet Singh

Changing an authentication of SharePoint site from SQL-FBA to Active Directory

Hi,      We are using MOSS 2007. I have customized a web application using Custom web part, features and ASPX pages. we have configured SQL-Form based Authentication for this site. I have also used FBA user management functionality from Codeplex. I have created some groups and my application (custom aspx page) is referencing these groups to send an email to specific person as per his role for certail events.        I have a requirement to migrate this set up on other server and change the authentication from SQL-FBA to Active Directory. So if I have to change the Authentication from SQL-FBA to AD then what are the steps I have to follow to make this happen?      I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks, Patav

First authentication on new site

Hello,I am taking an existing ASP.NET site with authentication, membership & roles and updating it. In the process I am pulling the authentication portion off of the site and using an SSO (through Central Authentication Services - CAS). I need to retain the use the membership and roles of .NET. Right now my site allows users to add an account and I approve and add them to groups. Since I will no longer do the account management I still need a way to add them to the proper groups once they have an account. The question is sort of a chicken/egg question... Since I am the admin I need to add myself first, but since the authentication is no longer local how do I do this? Do I develop a special function just to add my account and then other pages to manage the rest?Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.'thanks,mitch

The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'

I am trying to do a soap request from a WebCTRL server. I went to add a service reference, entered the URL to my wsdl and (after prompting me for a username and password) it added the reference and I can create an instance of the service object and makes calls against it.   Dim eval As New WebCTRL_Eval.EvalClient eval.Open() Debug.Print(eval.getValue("#reception_40/lstat"))   I get this back from the server, on open and getvalue.   The HTTP request is unauthorized with client authentication scheme 'Anonymous'. The authentication header received from the server was 'Basic realm="SOAP Access"'.   I understand that it is the HTTP authentication that I need to setup or configure, but just dont understand how to do it.   I have tried eval.ClientCredentials.UserName.UserName = "myusername" eval.ClientCredentials.UserName.Password = "mypassword"   How do I change the client authentication scheme and provide my credentials to it?   Here is what is on my app.config file.   <system.serviceModel>  <bindings>   <wsHttpBinding>    <binding name="EvalSoapBinding"     bypassProxyOnLocal="false"     transactionFlow="false"     hostNameComparisonMode="StrongWildcard"     maxBufferPoolSize="524288"     maxReceivedMessageSize="65536"     messageEncoding="Text"

Changed to claims based authentication, now I can't access my site. Please help! Time is of the ess

I am in a pretty big bind. I have a sharepoint 2010 site, that was using classic windows authentication. It worked fine from the inside, and I was able to extend it to the outside and it was using https with an SSL certificate. However, my performancepoint reports and my external lists weren't working when the site was accessed from the outside. Apparently this is a known issue with using classic authentication on the outside, so I tried to switch over to claims based authentication. I followed this guide: http://blogs.technet.com/b/wbaer/ar...point-2010.aspx I obviously changed the contoso stuff to my domain name, and changed all of the config files. The problem is, now I can't access the site at all from the inside or the outside. Here is the error I get in my logs: code: An exception occurred when trying to issue security token: Could not connect to [url]http://localhost:32843/SecurityTokenServiceApplication/securitytoken.svc/actas.[/url] TCP error code 10061: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it .

User keeps losing Session on Anonymous site?


This code was working before, but something has changed and I don't know what.  I have an anonymous registration page.  On it, I have a CAPTCHA image, with a URL pointing to an ASPX page that is generating the image.  On the Registration page I am generating a 6 digit code to be displayed in the CAPTCHA image, then saving it to a Session variable.  On the CAPTCHA ASPX page, I am grabbing that Session variable and creating the image.  However, the Session is resetting when the CAPTCHA ASPX page is called.  If I debug it, it has a different ID and the variable is gone.

Why is this happening and how can I fix it?  I have Sessions enabled in SharePoint 2007.
