When we originally setup our SharePoint 2010 installation, we used Windows Classic Authentication. We have since built a couple of custom applications using VS2010 and deployed them to the _layouts directory. These apps query information from our ERP system
and display them on a web page. We keep this inside of SharePoint to be consistent with the look and feel of the rest of the intranet.
We had a consultant come in to help with some other items with our SharePoint install and we converted to Claims Based Authentication. Now, when trying to use these custom applications, they ask for a username and password when you submit the information
to query. When you provide the info, it does not authenticate and fails after three attempts. Does anyone know what additional steps are necessary for these apps to use the Claims Based Security Tokens? I've scoured the internet for two days looking for answers
and haven't come up with anything useful.
