Bypass Integrated Windows Authentication

Hi,

I recently installed CRM 3.0 and need to do some further customizations programatically. I want to write a page that would accept data via a query string and submit the data into the CRM database.

As there's Integrated Windows Authentication set on the root directory, any new files I try to access via the web requires me to log in. However, if I create a simple .htm file and set the authentication to "Enable anonymous access" only I can access that file directly without having to enter log in details.

I tried to do the same with a simple .aspx and .asp file but both files required login details even though the "Enable anonymous access" was only ticked.

Does anybody know a way I can around this, whether by code or by altering the IIS settings, which in this case I will post in the correct forum.

Many thanks

Steve

In the web.config file you can set up different files to use different permisions (windows auth, none, etc).
If you look up these tags with respect to the web.config file:
<authentication>
<authorization>

and probably most importantly <location>

Of course if you wanted ALL files to be allowed without requiring a login you would do something like this in the web.confg:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <authentication mode="None">
  2. </authentication>
  3. <authorization>
  4.    <allow users="*"/>
  5. </authorization>
