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? 

Windows Forms: Developing Compelling User Controls that Target Forms in the .NET Framework

  

In the beginning, writing controls meant dealing with Windows messages. Then came Visual Basic controls, which introduced methods, properties, and events. Later, ActiveX controls, which ran atop COM, became popular. While each innovation in control writing brought more flexibility, nothing has matched the versatility of the new .NET Windows Forms controls and Web Forms controls. This article, the first of a two-part series, introduces the reader to Windows Forms, beginning with their inheritance from one of the .NET CLR base classes, which makes control creation much faster than before. Control programming is illustrated through the development of a login control. The equally flexible Web Forms controls will be covered in Part 2.

=User!UserID from windows authentication using table from another database

  

hi,

i'm using sql server 2005, sql server business intelligence development studio for my reports and deploy them in my wss3.0 site.

what i'm trying to do is i'm trying to restrict wich users can see specific data within a report.

now, the thing is. the report gets the data out of my DB1 database and my windows authenticated user are in the WSS_content database.

when i deploy my report in my wss3 site. it gets the user that is loged in. but of course it does not display any data because the tables are not in the same database.

does someone knows how to do this?


Active Directory user impersonation with forms authentication

  
I've written a small ASP.NET 3.5 application to allow users to update selected account attributes on their own. Everything works fine when I use Basic Authentication, but because the dialog that is presented is less than ideal, I'd like to use forms authentication to give the users more instruction on how to log in. My problem is that in order for the user to update their account information, I have to have the application impersonate them for the update actions. I've scoured the internet trying to find a solution to my issue, but nothing fits or works. I have tried setting the web.config:<identity impersonate="true" /> but that doesn't seem to work. I also have the C# code using the WindowsImpersonationContext class, but still no luck. protected void titleTextBox_TextChanged(object sender, EventArgs e) { TextBox tb = (TextBox)sender; string fieldTitle = "job title"; string fieldName = "title"; if (userDirectoryEntry == null) CaptureUserIdentity(); try { WindowsImpersonationContext impersonationContext = userWindowsIdentity.Impersonate(); if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(tb.Text)) userDirectoryEntry.Properties[fieldName].Clear();

ASP.NET Forms Authentication connecting to SQL Server with Windows Authentication

  
Hi everyone, I am not sure if this is the correct forum - apologies in advance - I could not identify where it should go! I have an ASP.NET Web Application that uses Forms Authentication using System.Web.Security.ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider for signing on using Windows credentials.  This works nicely and is solid. The problem I have is connecting to SQL Server.  I need to be able to connect to SQL Server using Windows Authentication (trusted_connection=yes or Integrated Security=SSPI).  This is critical so I can record the user that created/last modified specific records and also to collect "Task-based" records that are relevant to the currently authenticated user. I have tried Google and a tonne of variations of web.config entries, using Win API to impersonate etc...  The only way that I could make it happen was to:- 1. Use the web.config entry:   (please entry at the bottom of the post.  For some reason it won't go into the right spot in this post!) 2. Log on specifically as the user specified in the above web.config entry.  If I log on as anyone else (ie Authenticate as anyone else), then SQL server simply gets the ASPNET service account as the Windows user. I have laboured over this for hours upon hours.  I really would appreciate some assistance. Thanks in Advance, Joe     "<identity

Forms Authentication sending user to LoginURL on first hit of page even though page has [allow users

  
On the first hit, and only the first hit, to my page having [ALLOW users="*"] in the web.config, the user is redirected to the LoginUrl, but on all subsequent visits to the page, the user IS allowed access.  The user shoud ALWAYS be allowed access to this page.  I suspect it is a configuration problem, so here are snippets of my web.config... <compilation debug="false" strict="true" explicit="true" /> <trace enabled="false"/> <authentication mode="Forms"> <forms protection="All" cookieless="UseCookies" requireSSL="false" slidingExpiration="false" timeout="20" name="12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789012" loginUrl="~/Web/Login.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Web/MyPage.aspx" enableCrossAppRedirects="false" /> <authentication> <httpCookies httpOnlyCookies="true" /> <sessionState cookieless="UseCookies" />         <location path="Web/Contact.aspx"> <system.web> <authorization> <allow users="*"/> <authorization> <system.web> <location>   Can you help me figure out why users are not ALWAYS allowed access to the /Web/Contact.aspx page? Thx!

Notify user of forms authentication timeout

  
When the forms authentication cookie expires, I'm trying to override the default behavior of redirecting to the login page, and pass a value on the querystring (timeout=true), so I can inform the user what has happened.I'm prepared to work out the logic to know if they have actually timed out or not, I just don't know the best place to override where the response is redirected to the login page.  The best place I can find is "FormsAuthentication_OnAuthenticate", but perhaps you know of a better place?Thanks!

Setting trust level for windows.system.forms.browser control

I am using a browser control in my WPF application. The users of this application will be using this control for viewing content that could contain malicious scripts. I want to set the Trust Level so that none of the scripts should be executed. I have added the Attribute to the method that creates the Browser control. I dont think its working though. Any thoughts on how this can be done?

InfoPath Forms Services has detected a mismatch between the user's data in the browser and on the s

  

Hi All,

I am getting following error message in my SharePoint Logs,

InfoPath Forms Services has detected a mismatch between the user's data in the browser and on the server. This may indicate the SESSION_STATE_PASCAL_CASED is not configured properly on a multiple front end farm or that a malicious user is trying to tamper with client data.

Any idea how to solve this issue ?

Implement both Forms and Windows Authentication

  

I have two web sites that will be hitting the same reporting services instance.  One is external facing (internet), the other intranet.  The external site is unable to use windows authentication because some of the devices to not support the challenge popup to enter their credentials (think: blackberry without enterprise server).  The other site is just normal windows machines who can pass their credentials normally.  From the research I have found it sounds like [for the external site] I have to have a form that collects their credentials, authenticates (via LogonUser) and they can go on their merry way.  I do not want to do this step for the internal site - I would like to rely on normal windows authentication.

The question is:  Is it possible to specify both types of authentication (custom extension and windows) on the same instance, or do I have to use 2 instances, or use forms for both?

Thank you in advance,

John


How to hide SQL Server password from user in an Windows Forms Application?

  

Using - VS 2005, SQL Server 2005 Express, Windows Forms Application

Problem-

I am unable to find a way that hides the password to connect to database in case of a Windws Forms Application.

- app.config is accessible to the user, so connection strings an be read.

- app.config can't be encrypted as in case of ASP.NET applications

- hardcoding the password in the application in connectionstring still makes it possible to be discovered by a user
