Customizing basic Authentication on IIS through ASP
Posted on 2004-04-19
this is a kind of urgent question that i need to solve as soon as possible.
I am working on a website development (using ASP and IIS), which interacts with a Microsoft RAIS server.before any user, hits the website,i need to authenticate his credentials ( userID and passsword) with the "Authenticated user group", which is defined on the IIS server.
For this, one best way is to use the Basic Authentication provided by IIS.
But I dont want to show the same old Dialog box provided by IIS, when the user hits the website.
I want to customize that to a HTML form control, and handle the authentication / logon in ASP itself.
The authentication is very necessary because once the user is authenticated, and logs into the website, Microsoft RAIS server (Its the product of microsoft, used for automating the network administritative tasks) uses the user's credentials and uses it to show some important information on the website.
Please let me know
