Hi, i'm configuring my database connection but when I go to the web.config I can see that there are 4 authentication modes, windows, forms, passport and none. Well, I would like know and understand the diferences among them. I've been reading these links
but I haven't it enough clear what to do to make a web-site to consult some data. Can you help me? Thanks in advance.

First of all do you require your users to input a user and password for your web application?
If answer is no the use None as the authentication mode
If yes and your application runs in a windows intranet then use Windows
If yes and you will be the one managing the user accounts then use Forms (plan for a user registration page as well)
If yes and you don't want to manage user accounts and you're not running your app in an Intranet use Passport (which is Windows Live ID now)
