Authentication question

  Asked By: Gopal    Date: Jan 25    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 676

Our company would like to move our current Employee portal to
Sharepoint. Currently, the frontpage of the portal has no
authentication requirements on it. A user is required to supply a
network username and password only when they click a link.

How would I duplicate this in Sharepoint? Would I have to allow
anonynmous access through IIS and then go to each Sharepoint site and
then 'lock-down' each individual site? We only want the front page of
our Employee portal to not required authentication. Every other part
of the employee portal site and our other sites we want to require

You got it! What you need to do is allow anonymous at the portal  level
and then apply the security at the site  level.

yeah you woul dhave to do it like that but one thing it will not be a good idea,
it will be like such a hectic task and lots and lots of process and workflow
management for every site  that in the end may be it fails, it would be a good
idea ot use the SPS own authentication  idea which is Windows domain
authentication yeah we call it NT authentication

Be aware that you might run into some wierdness mixing anonymous and
authenticated content in the same portal. It's suggested that you either use
Integrated Authentication as mentioned below, or setting up 2 portal  instances
pointing at the same content DBs, one anonymous, and one authenticated.
