IIS 6.0 authentication

I am investigating methods of authentication in IIS 6.0. Though on an internal MS domain, I need to have users login using a form, since some users access it from kiosk type clients.

Should IIS be set to "forms" or if set to "windows" will negotiate the proper method. Could I also use basic and force SSL on?

IIS will authenticate the users against Active Directory in the domain and the web server is a member of the domain.

There is to be no anonymous access.

Thanks.

IIS doesn't have a "Forms" authentication type.

ASP.Net has forms based auth functionality and OWA also has a forms based auth functionality.

If you use Windows authentication it will be used if the client understands Windows Integrated auth.  If enabled Basic would be used if the client doesn't understand Windows Integrated.

You can use SSL with any auth type since it has nothing to do with authentication.
