I was in a similar situation - I need to force implicit login via Windows credentials, but also support a login web form for both windows and non-windows users. I used the information in the microsoft application below. However, there is a simpler solution,
but it depends on the architecture of your website.
If all of your administrative pages are in a specific directory below the root (i.e. /ADMIN) you can allow anonymous for the whole site, but separately require logged in users for the subdirectory. This will force users to login when they hit the admin section.
There is also one more way to 'force' a login on the local users. Try these couple of steps:
- Set up your whole site for anonymous access
- force one page on your server to require windows authentication
- require that employees access that page to enter your site.
This will ensure that they login with windows credentials to access the site, and propagate their windows credentials around the site.
The Microsoft Knowledge Base Article is #326340, or you can use: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;326340 If gives sample code and instructions to use this in a web app but as I don't have the proper development tools, I was hoping there
was a simpler easier way that I was just missing.
