Hi experts,

 Private Shared Function Connection() As SqlConnection
        Dim conHalloween As New SqlConnection
        Dim sConnectionString As String _
         = "Data Source= SKYNET;" _
        & "Initial Catalog=Halloween;" _
            & "Integrated Security=SSPI"
        conHalloween.ConnectionString = sConnectionString
        Return conHalloween

Try :


    Private Shared Function Connection() As SqlConnection
        Dim conHalloween As New SqlConnection
        Dim sConnectionString As String = & _
            "Data Source= SKYNET;" & _
            "Initial Catalog=Halloween;" & _

Have you granted the IUSR_SKYNET local user access to the database? You are using integrated security, so it will connect in the context of the user. Either grant access to the local user account, connect with a SQL login account or use windows authentication and impersonation to connect to the SQL Server.

Open Enterprise Manager on the SQL Server, go to security-->logins right click - new login.
Type in the name SKYNET\IUSR_SKYNET, select Windows Authentication and select the server name from the domain dropdown list. Under the database access tab, select the database to which this user has access.

OK, you're ahead of me ;)

Note that best practice for security is to use windows authentication with impersonation, either connecting as the user that is connecting to the site or impersonating a specific domain account (you would set this up in the web.config) .

Next best would be to use a specific SQL login and use that in your connection string.
