Hi, I would like to do a mockup of how to login to an Classic ASP page using Active Directory Credentials.  I have already connected to the AD using LDAP and was able to query all of the groups and it;s members.  however now I would like to take it a step further and actually use an HTML form that posts an action to a classic asp form action page that queries the AD to see if the user / pass is correct and then allow them to progress to the next screen if this is true....

i know this may be simple.... but my way was kinda bloated and id like an EXPERT to simplify it for me without all the excess :)  Thanks!!!!!

Try something like this:

boolLoggedIn=false
strDomain = "MYDOMAIN"
strUser="user1"
strUserDomain = strDomain & "\" & strUser
strPassword="password"
ADS_SECURE_AUTHENTICATION=1 'this is a const, not a flag

Set objNameSpace= GetObject("WinNT:")    
Set objDSObject = objNameSpace.OpenDSObject("WinNT://" & strDomain, strUserDomain, strPassword, ADS_SECURE_AUTHENTICATION)
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
    boolLoggedIn = False
Else
     boolLoggedIn = True
End If

Good job...the only thing missing from this example are variable declarations...but you should know that by looking at it.  just a FYI to novice programmers who may be researching this thread
