Authentication against Active Directory + .NET Forge

How can one authenticate against Active Directory? This question recently came up in our forum. I answered that the ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider class is a full-service provider for authentication for Active Directory. But that lead to other questions: how does one 'register' the provider correctly? Can 2 providers be active at the same time? How can users from different domains be authenticated? Realizing that this was only the beginning, and that the forum would not be the best position to fend off the barrage, I retired, promising to cover the matter(s) in my blog. Here is the keeping of that promise.


Excellent B2B Cargo Web Application built with .NET Forge CMS

Company and Implementer

A ground-breaking project on the .NET Forge CMS platform is slated to be launched by long-time Bitrix partner GALS Soft in August 2011. The project is being developed on order from ground transportation services specializing in oversized shipments and working in the European and Russian markets. The company serves about 200 regular clients and manages a network that includes 7 warehouses and about 500 factories which will be the main users of the system.

Project Goals

The project goal is to create a system which unites a large number of logistics services companies in Europe and Russia. Small companies have an advantageous, individual approach to work with clients, but at the same time they can be united to solve organizational issues more effectively and expand their client base.
