Default Integrate Active Directory authentication in a Web Application

Hi all,
I have a simple web application ASP.NET 4 that I'm developing on my local machine. Has just a few pages, very simple, with the default.aspx with the Start Page.

Now I need to adjust this web application to run on a pc connected in a network that uses Active Directory authentication, and I would need to intercept who is the user connected and show him only a few controls (not all of them) depending of his role.

What changes I must make on my application to permit this?

Thanks in advance.

Default some ideas

Hi my friend

first set Mode attribute of Authentication tag in web.config to Forms

<Authentication Mode="Forms" />

this is because of manual and fully controlled authentication
and then use special command to get users list:

see these links:



and google knows more ...
happy every time, happy every where
