I have a web site in visual studio 2008, going to a MS web server 2008 web edition web server.
I have front page extensions installed on this server.
I am trying to use the copy web site menu item to copy my local files to my remote server. If I have forms authentication, instead of windows authentication in my web.config:
<forms cookieless="UseCookies" defaultUrl="~/Default.aspx" domain="" enableCrossAppRedirects="false" loginUrl="~/Login.aspx" name=".ASPXAUTH" path="/" protection="All" requireSSL="false" slidingExpiration="true" timeout="30" />
<identity impersonate="false" />
I get this error when trying to connect to the site to copy:
Unable to open the web site http://www.xxx.com/". The web server does not appear to hvae any authentication methods enabled. It asked for user authentication, but did not send a WWW-Authenticate header.
What am I lacking? Why can't I copy using forms authetication. If I change to windows authentication, I can copy, but this is no good for my web site since I need forms authentication.
