WSS teamsite access for users from web application

  Asked By: Eugene    Date: Feb 21    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1150

I have a bespoke web application accesed through forms
authentication where USER role and security is stored in SQL. I want
to give access to user from this application to WSS a specific team
site based on his security. How Can I pass user credentials to WSS
without WSS prompting for user name and password like a single sign
on.The link between web application and WSS has to be seamless.

There is no active directory because some users can not be added to

I know the reverse works for single sign on from WSS to access custom

We've been over this ground with Microsoft many times. SharePoint cannot use
forms authentication, I'm afraid you'll have to have your users  log in. We
couldn't find a way to construct a network credential on behalf of the user  - if
you can I'd love to hear about it.
