    Hi Guys,

    I've and application running over the net and the problem is that everytime is asking me for the server's username/password, by providing the credentials I'm able to access the page, but how can I avoid that?

    this what I have in my web config file, i removed the the whole <authentication> tag but still the same thing

     <authentication mode="Windows">
                <forms loginUrl="~/Public/daLogin.aspx" defaultUrl="~/Public/Default.aspx" name=".ASPXAUTH" path="/" />
                <deny users="?" />
                <allow users="*" />
            <roleManager enabled="true" />

    Hi rbadis,

    <authentication mode="Windows">

    Windows Authentication is the default authentication mechanism for ASP.NET applications and is identified as the authentication mode for an application using the authentication configuration element.

    You could disable Windows Authentication and enable Anonymous Authentication in IIS Express, or you could consider using Forms Authentication.

    <authentication mode="Forms">

    Best Regards,
