Forms Authentication with Active Directory

    We are interested in using Forms Authentication with Active Directory. We
    understand that the presence of web.config prevents access to .aspx files
    unless authenticated. Is there similar mechanism that authenticate users
    against AD when they want to access Word files or PDF files? We prefer not
    to use IIS Integrated Windows Authentication.



    Thanks.

  2. Hello E. Kwong" ekwong999AThotmail.com,

    you have to map the .pdf and .doc extensions to aspnet_isapi in the IIS script
    mappings - this will do the trick.
