Beginner's question about access control in ASP.Net 2.0

P: n/a
I have extensive programming experience in windows and asp.net 1.1 but I've
just started looking at access control in 2.0 and I'm absolutely lost.
(Background note: I'm writing a 2.0 website for a company intranet, no
outside access so far as I know. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 Team Edition
and I'm only allowed to use SQL Server 2000.)

So before I do anything else I'd like to ask: Does the Web Site
Adminstration Tool even work with SQL Server 2000? (I've read the WSAT help
and I've run aspnet_regsql but I still can't get it to work. Still digging...)

WSAT is (imho) more for the hobbyist or the most basic of web pages....and
not a real enterprise application.

It is mainly for altering roles inside the web.config file.

I would RUN AWAY from it.

You need to do some searching for
"MembershipProvider" and "RoleProvider".

Go here

and find the scottgu link .... and you'll see how to work within the
confines of Sql Server 2000 as well.

VS2005 put a lot of stuff in .... which is geared toward RAPID development.
I call that prototype development.
So I'd say this...just because its in VS2005, doesn't mean you necessarily
should be using it.

Esp the WSAT. That thing was a complete waste of time.
And it didn't work on a remote setup, only a local web.config file if I
recall correctly. Aka, the hobbyist.
Find the scottgu link ... and work with it. He's forgotten more about
asp.net then most of us will ever learn.
