    Hi Vishal,

    Windows authentication is the recommended way to connect to SQL Server because you avoid storing credentials in connection strings and you avoid passing passwords over the network to your database server. Here is the reference for you, see: Connect to SQL Server Using SQL Authentication in ASP.NET 2.

    With regards,
