    We're using Sitefinity for an intranet.

    We'd like to continue to use Sitefinity's authentication for the CMS, but the "public" side needs to use Integrated Windows Authentication.  I've seen a lot of posts that describe how to use IWA for the CMS while leaving the public side anonymous (although I wouldn't mind using IWA for the CMS, too, if it makes things easier), but how does one set it up the other way around?  When I disable Anonymous access in IIS7 and enable IWA, all pages return the "This type of page is not served" error message.

    Hi RSewell,

    By default Sitefinity relies on FormsAuthentication cookie and RolePrincipal, when you use IWA there is no FormsAuthentication cookie and FormsIdentity. Basically our CmsHttpModule does not support windows authentication. You can force Windows authentication for some physical files, but then you should authenticate yourself through Sitefinity login form( backend or using ASP.NET Login control on the front end).

    Kind regards,
