Can't use Windows authentication. Will anonymous authentication work?
I am developing a portal and I am using Active Directory to store the
membership information. I am not able to give Windows authentication because it is an Internet
scenario. Will anonymous authentication work?
I don't know enough about the application you're developing to be sure, but you can probably
use the anonymous user account for authentication.
To set the anonymous user account to an Active Directory domain account, open the Internet
Services Manager. View the properties for the Web site, and select the Directory Security tab. Make
sure the Anonymous Access checkbox is selected, and click the Browse button to select the account
you would like all anonymous requests to use.
