Calling Data Services with OOB Silverlight app and Windows authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi There,

    We've developed a Silverlight 4 application which uses WCF Data Services.  The services are secured via Windows Authentication and IIS.  When the application is installed out of browser (OOB) the browser which was doing the challenge response with IIS is no longer available.  SL4 provides a new http stack that we can use to make http requests with credentials, however Data Services handles making the http requests which is out of reach for tweaking to use the alternate http stack.  Any ideas on how we can get this to work?

  • Hi Robert,
    In SL4, WCF Data Services will also enable you to set the credentials to be used, it will be available with the next SL4 SDK release (RTW).
