This scares the hell out of me!!


I am currently developing a web asp.net app, as part of the app it will be required to access the Active Directory to determin the privs of a connected windows authenticated user - I have only been able to get this to work if I alter the machine.config file to have a hard coded administrator account that is allowed to access the AD.


I am sure this article goes some way to explaining that it is possible to acheive this level of access another way, however I can't make sense of it in this context.

    Hey, did you ever work around or through the problem of access the AD? Did you use the WindowsPrincipal.IsInRole() method?
