Hi

I am a bit confused.  You have a windows form, but you tagged your question as "ASP.NET" and you submitted it in the "Programming for ASP.NET" zone.  How does your Windows form interact with your ASP.NET web site?

It would also be helpful to know how to determine if a password was legitimate or not.  Is this Windows authentication or a user account defined in a database or something else?

Parth98, you didn't answer my question, only the more recent one from UnifiedIS?

If you have a Windows application that is going to call say an ASP.NET web service then the normal approach would be to make a request to your web service method having set the credentials property of the HTTPWebRequest object to the credentials that the user entered, like this:

MyHTTPRequest.Credentials = New System.Net.NetworkCredential("myusername","mypassword");

The username and password will then be passed to ASP.NET in the header of the request.  If they are valid, then the web service method will run, and if not you will get an exception which you can handle by displaying a message to the user.
