Hey All

I have a program that i am writing in vb.net that once a user is loged in I change the current user using impersonate to be a particualr windows user that i want them to be

I then would like them to goto a website in ie or inside the webbrowser control but as that user.  The website they are going to is report server and it alters the data it retrieved depending on the windows user that is loged on.

I have tested the report server end by right clicking on ie and saying "run as" but when i try an launch ie from the application, it logs back in as the original windows user.

Does anyone have any ideas about this

Cheers

Hi,

I have used this in the past to get into a secured website, it may work for you so thgat the report server impersonates your required user. Sorry but its in C#, I'm not the best with vb.Net, can you translate the code ok? The important bit is the setting of the hdr variable.


System.Uri myUri = (System.Uri)"http://whatever.co";
string username = "username";
string password = "password";

string hdr = "Authorization: Basic " + Convert.ToBase64String(Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(username + ":" + password)) + System.Environment.NewLine;

webBrowser1.Navigate(myUri, null, null, hdr);
