I currently have a .NET web app that runs on a Windows XP machine. This web app needs to access files on a Netware share. However, I can't figure out how to get IIS to successfully authenticate to the LDAP so I can retrieve the files. I've tried to use the identity tag in the web.config file to handle the authentication but I keep getting an unknown username error. I've tried setting up the anonymous access on the virtual directory to be that of a Novell user but every time I try to load the app, I get an XP window asking me to enter a username and password.

I posted my problem in the eDir forum because I thought I had to use an API to log into LDAP, but they said that I should be able to configure Client32 (using Novell Client 4.91 SP4 for Windows) to handle the authentication and allow my web app to access the files and that my question might be better answered here. Can anyone help me?

Sorry, I'm really new to Novell.
