Capturing Windows NT authentication for client. - ASP.NET General

Hello all. I'm trying to convert an application with a SQL Server 2000 back end and an Access front-end. The back end is fine. I'm just trying to give it a web front-end using ASP.NET. The problem is that since Access runs on the client machine, it gathers NT authentication information at the client and uses that to access the database. Is it possible to capture NT authentication information at the client through the browser for an intranet application? If not, can anybody suggest an alternative? Thanks. --Brad [email]btrechaksiebertnet.com[/email]...

    Default Capturing Windows NT authentication for client.

    Hello all.

    I'm trying to convert an application with a SQL Server 2000 back end
    and an Access front-end. The back end is fine. I'm just trying to
    give it a web front-end using ASP.NET. The problem is that since
    Access runs on the client machine, it gathers NT authentication
    information at the client and uses that to access the database. Is it
    possible to capture NT authentication information at the client
    through the browser for an intranet application? If not, can anybody
    suggest an alternative? Thanks.

    Not through a browser application, but you could build a Rich Client app
    that uses the browser control and through it pass the info forward.

    Generally browser client apps don't need the security context from the
    client because you can force a single login on the server which will
    authenticate you for the page and all subsequent pages you request on the
    server. If you set your permissions on the ASP.Net pages on the server
    properly you should be able to do what you want albeit with one extra login
    dialog (then again if it's a browser app at some point the user needs to
    login anyway).
