Hi,

I am trying to set up a windows authentication  on my asp.net web application.
I have a security group on active directory which is called, RedTeam and BlueTeam.
I am following this article and I can't make it run.
How to authenticate against the AD by using forms authentication and c# (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316748)

I am using the exact code in this article.
1) My agency's server name goes like this, myagency.xy.abc.
From my computer, I used nslookup and found something like abc001.myagency.xy.abc.
I guess I am not sure exactly if I got the correct name.

String adPath = "LDAP://myagency.xy.abc"; //Fully-qualified Domain Name


2) It errors out from this line.
Object obj = entry.NativeObject; <===
What does this do? Do I need this?
Without this, it still errors out saying that my userid and/or password are incorrect.

3) Do I use this SAMaccount?
search.Filter = "(SAMAccountName=" + username + ")";
I want to check if this is userid is in AD and my security group (ReadTeam or BlueTeam)

Do I use this instead?
objectClass = User

4) I am testing this from the VS2010 and it is telling me that my userid and/or pw are incorrect.
How can I fix? This should be something easy but I can't make it work.
can you helP?

5) all I want to do is I want to authenticate users against the security group on active directory.
I want to use their windows ID & PW and check it against ldap, if they are in the group, let them access the application.
Thanks

Have you modified the authentication mode to 'Forms' in web.config.

please check it once and also check IIS settings as mentioned in the article given.
