[Mono-list] different behavior between .NET and Mono

You can use the user account in sql that already there for access to that
database, that's fine. However, the connection must authenticate you by
sending the username and password, whereas with windows authentication, your
logged in windows user credentials would be sent automatically, and the
matched against a sql user, which is what cannot happen on mono. So, yes,
your connection string could be altered to pass the sql user name and

I'm not a pro at MS-SQL, though I'm kinda learning my way around...
So there's a difference between an SQL user and a Windows users? I have 2
users: Xuser with no Login Name and Permit DB access, and dbo with a Login
Name of Xuser and Permit DB access. Looking at either users' properties, I
don't see how to know which type of user they are.
As for the type of login, I'm guessing that will be part of the options to
the connection call rather than the connection string? I don't see anything
that indicates the type of connection in the connection string...
However, since the SQL logging output indicates SQL commands being received,
it seems that it already knows to use an SQL connection.
Thank you very much!
