Hi
Am using Sharepoint 2010 and have successfully enabled anonymous authentication.

In hindsight this isnt really what i need. I would ideally need some kind of Pass-through authentication. I have had a good google, but all i can find are details on anonymous auth. anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

what do you mean by pass-through authentication?  i mean, what do you want it to do?

if you want the user to have to have some level of authentication, have you considered FBA?

basically, users have to enter a login every time they access the sites and subsites. i want them to be able to use the sites without logging in each time. although i have setup anonymous access, its not really ideal.

if you want users to be able to use the sites without logging in, then you want anonymous access.

any other type of authentication will require credentials.

if users see a login prompt, i think it's possible you haven't properly configured anonymous access.

did you configure AAM & extend your site to a new zone?

thanks for your help, but wasnt quite what i was after.

have added the site to trusted sites and under the internet zone > custom level, scrolled right to the bottom and selected Automatic logon with current user name and password. seems to have done the trick.

dont suppose you might know if that can be done by group policy?? will be tedious if i have to do that for all users.
