Q.

I recently purchased and installed a copy of AuthentIX for our departmental Win2K/IIS server. The installation went fine, but I'm having trouble making the authentication via the NT database work at all. After I create the "template" file and place it in the appropriate web source directory, I am unable to login via the appropriate NT username and password. I've tried using the "Test" button on the NT tab, and even if I test using my Administrator account and password, the program replies "Unable to login as Administrator" (or something similar).

A.

Open up interactive logins for *everyone* at the domain console.

Allow interactive logins at the domain console, since its physically located in a secure place. It's *not* the default setup for Windows 2000 though, and it's not an easy setting to find buried in the domain security policy.

If that doesn't solve it, try turning on Security Auditing on the template file, and see which account is trying to access it. I'm pretty sure this is a setup issue, since it normally works fine.
