Unable to set up an authentication
 
Wrox professional asp.net 2.0 Page 674

calls to add the following
<authentication mode="Windows">
<authorization>
<deny users="*" />
</authorization>
</authentication>
I get this error:
Unrecognized element 'authorization'

This is a stand alone PC with VS2008 and SQLserver 2005 installed.
Have tried microsoft website/newsgroups but no help there.

And where are you adding this? Can you show the rest of the config file?

Also, authorization is not a sub element of authentication. It probably should be:

<authentication mode="Windows">
</authentication>
<authorization>
<deny users="*" />
</authorization>

Yes, and?

I don't see the item that's causing the error....

otuatail May 5th, 2010 05:16 PM

Ok sorry about that I corrected that. Thanks for your support
My main problem is I have

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="Wrox" loginUrl="Login.aspx" path ="/" />
</authentication>

<authorization>
<deny users ="*" />
</authorization>

This takes me to a login page where I enter username, Password and hit submit.

The code behind page should say
SELECT UserID from Users where ... etc.

If I get a positive result how do I set it so all pages work. Needs a sessio or cookie?

Desmond.

Imar May 6th, 2010 02:48 AM

Are you going to create your own security mechanism? Aren't you much better off using the built-in Membership and Roles features?

Imar

otuatail May 6th, 2010 06:55 AM

Don't know how this is done. I do know about creating tables of users and passwords.

I added this to the web.config

<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms name="Wrox" loginUrl="Login.aspx" path ="/" />
</authentication>

<authorization>
<deny users ="*" />
</authorization>

And added

protected void submit1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(User.Tex t, true);
}

to a login form. However it does not redirect me to the page I went to. It stays on the login page.

Also I am using a stand alone PC now server or network,
So using the built-in Membership and Roles features would not work.

Why not?

Profesional asp.net 2.0 ISBN:978-0-7645-7610-2
Page 685 deals with connecting to a database table and if successfull
call FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage(User.Tex t, false);
This is in Listing 18-9: Dosn't do anything

There is no mention of roll managment at this point.
I can get to the Welcome to the Web Site Administration Tool &
Security -> Enables you to set up and edit users, roles, and access permissions for your site.

Result:
There is a problem with your selected data store. This can be caused by an invalid server name or credentials, or by insufficient permission. It can also be caused by the role manager feature not being enabled. Click the button below to be redirected to a page where you can choose a new data store.

The following message may help in diagnosing the problem: Unable to connect to SQL Server database.

Imar May 6th, 2010 10:21 AM

Is this a new problem or is this an answer to the "why not" question?

If you come here for help, please help us help you by providing relevant information and a detailed explanation of your problem. Merely dumping error messages isn't going to get you very far.
