I'm dealing with an old client environment where their web site has been built using ASP. The client would like to upgrade their login system so that access to the site would be granted based on Active Directory groups. Is this possible using ASP? I haven't
been able to find good information on ASP and Active Directory since most sites deal with ASP.net and AD. If it's not possible, what would be the fastest and easiest way to handle this? An ASP.net application that would handle the checking against AD and then
redirecting to the site or some other way?

There's an ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider which is part of System.Web.Security: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.security.activedirectorymembershipprovider.aspx
That should simplify your task.
If you are asking about classic ASP and AD, that's off topic here. But there is nothing within classic ASP that integrates with AD. AD was introduced in 2000. The Classic ASP framework effectively ceased to be developed before that.

Yes, I was asking about classic ASP because the client system uses it. I know it's kind of off topic but I didn't know of another place to ask and since using classic ASP with AD isn't possible, ASP.net is the way to go.

You can access AD using VBscript which was used in ASP. Been a while since i looked at ASP but the VBscript code should work with it. Here is a sample,
But if you can asp.net would probably be the way to go
