We are thinking of implementing Sharepoint 3.0 for some testing purposes.
Its all setup on a Windows 2008 R2 64 bit, its also a DC. WSS 3.0 with SP2 installed and it is running fine.
However, we need the authentication to be forms based, just like OWA.
By default the authentication is through a pop up which is Windows based GUI where you type in your username and password.
I have looked up and there are instructions in MS documentation to do that and what I have to do is change the authentication settings under sharepoint settings and change the authentication type to form based authentication.
The guys who knows about this will know what I am talking about.
I have to select forms based authentication but then also provide the name of the authentication provider or something. This is where I am stuck.
Can someone help me as to what I should be putting in and if I need to configure the web.config file as mentione? If so, where exactly is the file?
Is there anything else I will need to do?
