It looks like when a user logs in to a webpage with their credentials, that ASP connects to "LocalSQLServer" which is defined in machine.config.
Is this hardcoded into one of the logon controls or can it be changed to use a server that I specify in my own web.config file?

I work in php w/ms sql server and not .net. However, the answer is you can connect to whatever db you want.  On a small site where you have your sql db on the same server as your site, it is best to use use localhost and not open up the port to your sql server to the outside.

If you have your sql server on a different box than your web server, then you need to open your firewall to allow traffic to your sql server.

Hi AlHal2,

When a user logs in to a webpage with their credentials  Asp.net connects to "LocalSQLServer" / "Remote SQL Server " which is defined in Web.config file.

Sample Example:

Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;Integrated Security=SSPI;
User ID=myDomain\myUsername;Password=myPassword

Open in new window

Is this hardcoded into one of the logon controls ?

Ans. No. (Please check your code, basically not ). It can be changed to use a server that you specify in your own web.config file.

Regards,
