Hi Guys!

You complicate it too much. If i do understend it right, you want forms
authentication, but not using the credentials stored in the config file.
What you want is customized authentication method (other store for
credentials and/or other credentials-chceking method, maybe also custom role
based security).

Check this article: 

Part 1:
Part 2: http://www.ondotnet.com/pub/a/dotnet/2004/02/16/formsauthpt2.html

Theese articles guides you step by step from the simlest customization to
the full-blown custom authentication and authorization.

May the source be with you! :)

Hello Peter

thanks for the quick reply.

I think I found the article you mean  
Is this functionality already supported by mono / xsp /mod_mono?

I had a quick look at SqlMembershipProvider.cs in mono-0.91 but there all  
functions threw the notimplementedexception. So I guess the answer is no.  
Or is the framework already in place to place in my own MembershipProvider?

Also from a quick glance on the document I am not sure how to integrate  
it. Do I still use the FormsAuthenticationModule or not?
