Accessing Username, password, roles in xml file

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 26, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

Currently I am storing my username and password (passwordFormat="SHA1") credientails in my web.config.  I would like to figure out how to access them in an xml file that I have stored in my App_Data directory rather than the web.config file because I do not want my application restarting everytime I manually add a user (small list of 5 authorized users for the CMS section).

Here is what my web.config section looks like:


<authentication mode="Forms">
      <forms name=".Administration"

Visio File Type Requesting for Username and Password


Hello all,

PS2007 to PS2010 migration went well in a Test Environment, but only one issue remains. When opening Visio file for editing, it constantly requests for username and password. I have ticked 'Remember Password', but that doesn't seem to work. Opening it in Read-Only mode is fine.

Please note that I asked this question in the Project Server Upgrade Forum, but I was told it is related to SharePoint. Can someone please assist?

Thank you,

accessing MSSQLServer on Windows with Simple File Sharing

I am running MS SQL Server Developer Ed. on Windows XP SP3 in workgroup(non-domained). Having read  in [1]: "NTLM Authentication: Challenge- Response mechanism. In the NTLM protocol, the client sends the user name to the server; the server generates and sends a challenge to the client; the client encrypts that challenge using the user’s password; and the client sends a response to the server.If it is a local user account, server validate user's response by looking into the Security Account Manager; if domain user account, server forward the response to domain controller for validating and retrive group policy of the user account, then construct an access token and establish a session for the use." I could not understand: What happens in the case of "Use Simple File Sharing (Recommended)" (Windows Explorer --> Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> Use Simple File Sharing-->)? IS server validate Windows user accounts with passwords in "Windows Authentication" mode? In other words, is there need to create user accounts for accessing server? I have never used simple file sharing before... PS. Is this mode available on server editions of Windowses?

SSIS multiple data flows accessing the same raw file

I have multiple data flow tasks accessing the same raw file at virtually the same time.  I would like to know if the data flow tasks lock the raw file during read?  Can multiple data flow tasks read the same raw file at the same time.  I'm currently developing with a very small data set, but I would like to know if I should be concerned with the possibility of the data flow tasks competing for access to the same raw file. Thanks.

How can I avoid sending UserName/Password for every call?

Hi I am using UserName/Password authentication with X.509 certificate in my WCF application. In this scenario I have to set UserName/Password credentials on every call that means I have to keep UserName and Password somewhere in my client application (ofcourse after user loged in). I am not sure that's a good idea. Does any body know how can fix this problem? I want user to login one time and afte that my client application can communicate securly with my WCF services. Is it possible? Thanks

Error when accessing an InfoPath file on a file share

Some users get an error when they try to open an InfoPath (2007) file which is location on a file share.  The users getting the error are from our South America domain.  All users, regardless of domain, have the same permissions to the file share folder and they can open and save other files on that file share, txt file, Excel file, etc.  They get this error when trying to open the Info Path file:  "InfoPath cannot create a new, blank form.  InfoPath cannot open the form.  to fix this problem, contact your system administrator.  The query cannot be run for the following data source:SoftwareList"

Accessing SharePoint via UNC Path Causes Password Prompt

I have a script that has to use a UNC path to drop a file into a SharePoint document library. For some users on some computers when they try to access the SharePoint site (http://Sharepoint) via the UNC Path (\\Sharepoint) they get a password prompt. Most users do not get a password prompt and get let right in. I have checked all the obvious things like zone settings, saved network passwords, etc. If I log a user that gets a password prompt into a different machine (that isn't having the problem) then it works just fine. This indicates to me that it is a client issue as opposed to a user issue.
