How To Get IIS-7 To Prompt For UID & P/W?
Posted on 2015-01-21
We're newbies at this, so please bear with us on this.
We have used the ReCrystallize Pro software, which requires you to do this via IIS-7, to build a "WEB" Based Crystal Reporting portal, but we are *VERY* concerned about exposing our Server/Access to the general public at large.
All we want to accomplish here, is to allow certain end-users, whom we know, to use whichever web browser on whichever mobile device they own (Tablet, Smartphone, Desktop Computer away from their corporate building), to be able to run reports as needed. Simple, simple.
We "think" we can use something like "https", and require a UserID & Password, to lock this down...are we correct here? And, specifically, how do we go about doing this? Any other suggestions? We are not technical when it comes to IIS/Web configuration, so please be gentle and simple :-)
Thank you very much!...Mark
