I need to write an ASP that requires a user to give a User Name and Password to run it.

P: n/a
I need to write an ASP that requires a user to give a User Name and Password
to run it. Whenever I've used this on the Web it displays a standard dialog
and then offers to save the User Name and Password on my computer so that I
don't have to enter it again. How is it that this standard dialog is
displayed? Does the ASP (in my case C#) do this or does the Web Server do
this and the ASP never knows about it?

It sounds like IIS is configured for Windows authentication. For websites we
almost always use anonymous authentication. I suggest you go to MSDN and
read some articles about form based authentication but start with this [1]
document and check out the IIS FAQ [2].

C# is used to develop ASP.NET applications (Web Forms) and can be used for
Windows Forms (desktop) applications. VBScript is used for ASP.

The part of this I don't understand is what has to happen to make sure the
standard browser dialog gets poped up that asks them for name and password.
I may want to store a name and password myself and check it rather than
using something like Windows authentication, but have the browser pop up
it's dialog to ask for it and offer to store in on the users computer.
