Setting IIS authentication method

Hi,
I would like to controll IIS authentication method from code or config file.
I need to control the "Integrated windows authentication" to be "Checked" or not. I must do it from the code or config file. (of course it is not mandotory to be "checked at the IIS directory security GUI)
When it is not checked I have to allow "Anonymous" access.
All the configuration must be done from a web page that runs under the same configured IIS.
If I need a special authorization please let me know.
Thanks Ranny

You could use the adsutil.vbs script
Calli the script throuth the System.Diagnostics.Process class.

the command should be:
cscript adsutil.vbs set [apppath]/authntlm [false|true]

replace st with get to know the current status

Another way could be WMI library.

You should run the aspx pagewith admin permission.

Thanks,
where should I make the call or use the vbs file?
Sorry, I'm only familiar with C# or javascript.
If you could make an example I'll be :-)
Thanks again

You could create a method in the page (for example ToggleAutentication) and call it when you set the checkbox or postback the page


ToggleAutentication(AnonymousCheckBox.Checked)

Read also this reference http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms525389.aspx explaining hot to use ADSI to explore IIS metabase using c#

...
using System.Diagnastics;
...
private void ToggleAutentication(IsAnonymous bool)
{
  
    ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new ProcessStartInfo();
    startInfo.CreateNoWindow = false;
    startInfo.UseShellExecute = false;
    startInfo.FileName = "cscript";
    startInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Hidden;
    startInfo.Arguments = "adsutil.vbs set [apppath]/authntlm " + IsAnonymous.ToSTring().ToLower()
 
    try
    {
        Process exeProcess = Process.Start(startInfo);
        exeProcess.WaitForExit();
        exeProcess.Close();
    }
    catch
    {
        // manage exception
        return;
    }
}

Hi paololabe,
I cannot really make it work.
If I use the "get" option, where should I expect to see the answer ?
Does any other parameter than "IsAnonymous" should be fill by me?
sorry for bothering...
thanks

I hope that isn't too late !

You could use:
startInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true
and read the stream startInfo.StandardOutput
