Authentication problem

    Hi All,

    I am writing an ASP.NET site that needs to know the user's details. Not
    such a problem when the user is logged in as I can use Windows
    Authentication to get their username. The problem comes because this
    app can be run _before_ they login to windows, meaning that they have
    no Windows credentials being passed. In this case a default user
    account should be used just to give them access (albeit non-validated).

    I was hoping to be able to create a separate page for this situation.
    This page would allow anonymous authentication, and all it would do is
    create a default set of credentials before redirecting to the actual
    site.

    I initially thought that turning anonymous authentication on in IIS
    would still pass credentials if you were logged in but this doesn't
    seem to be the case (if you know this to be incorrect, please tell me
    as I could be setting it up wrong).

    Is there a way in .NET to set the user credentials before redirecting
    to another page in the same project?

    Many Thanks,
    Nick
