Commerce with ASP.NET: Leverage the Authentication and Form Validation Features of ASP.NET to Bolste


If you're planning to build an e-commerce site, you'll be pleased to see that ASP.NET makes it easier than ever. Existing controls can be used and extended to add a great deal more functionality than you might expect. In this article, forms-based authentication is used to verify the identity of users and make certain areas of the site, such as the check-out page, inaccessible to unauthorized users. The power and flexibility of validation controls are demonstrated using the CustomValidator control to connect to a Web Service that verifies addresses. A shopping cart is then implemented in ASP.NET using the DataGrid, and finally, credit card authorization and billing are performed.

Form based authentication Sharepoint 2007 gets redirected to login page

Hi We have sharepoint 2007 site deployed on Windows server 2008, IIS 7.0.  We extended the web application to enable forms based authentication referring to link http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb975136(office.12).aspx#MOSS2007FBAPart1_Intro, we selected Kerberos instead of NTLM, behavior is like, when user tries to login into the site using OOB login.aspx, user again gets redirected to the login page. We tried to extend the web application again but this time we selected NTLM, but this time farm account (also is application pool identity) is not able login and exhibits same behavior as above, but for other users we are able to login. Has anyone come across this behavior? can anyone please guide me in correct the behavior? Regards, RK  Radhakrishna

Using Logon Form with Windows Authentication


I have created an Intranet site using windows authentication based on role membership.  It is working great.  My Web.config is shown below.

  <authentication mode="Windows" />
  <roleManager enabled="true" defaultProvider="AspNetWindowsTokenRoleProvider" />
   <allow roles="D820\Developers, D820\IT, D820\Staff, D820\Providers, D820\Supervisors, D820\Directors, D820\Interns" />
      <deny users="?"/>

Now my user wants the capability of being able to login to the intranet site as another user.  For example, IT guy needs to login on a user's system to set some data.

I have created a standard MS Login Page.  However when I try to login on the page I get the message

Your login attempt was not successful. Please try again

I do not have a database (aspnetdb.mdf) storing user information but login against the active directory.  Can you use the login form with windows authentication without a database?

If yes, can you point me to an article that describes how to do it?

Thanks for your he
