Remove Passport Authentication from IIS6

Hi

I have a webserver running IIS 6. I was trying to use .NET Passport authentication for a site, but I decided that its not what I want. I unticked the box, but now all of my sites on that server are coming up with the .NET authentication box!

Normally that wouldnt be a problem, because you can just enter the full account name (i.e. username@domain.com) and it works, except my users dont know this and will try to enter their email addresses which will fail.

Can someone please tell me how to get rid of it and get it back to Standard Windows Authentication?



Thanks

Not sure why its happening, but the good thing is you can easily restore your iis 6.0 settings to whatever they were before because iis 6.0 automatically creates a backup each time you make changes and keeps ten history files from which you can do a restore. Determine what time you made the change and follow these instructions for restoring. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/prodtechnol/WindowsServer2003/Library/IIS/cc0b0c9c-f078-4a58-8898-19c9d6aa8ee4.mspx?mfr=true

Once you have restored to version of the metabase before you enabled .net passport authentication the problem will be fixed.

Thanks for the response, except I cant afford to loose the configuration I have now (I kept on configuring things after it happened) and its taken me hours...

Is there any other way to fix it?

Check your web.config file for the tag <authentication> as shown below:


<authentication mode=Passport>

Try replacing passport with none.
