Web Connection provides a number of ways to authenticate users through your application code:
Uses Windows Accounts and an HTTP level protocol to validate users. Works well if your app is internal and you can easily add user accounts to Windows.
Uses the wwUserSecurity class which uses FoxPro tables to manage basic user access. This mechanism uses plain HTML pages to display a login dialog or provides a wwWebLogin control to use on a page to check for authentication.
File Level Windows Authentication and ScriptMaps
This mechanism allows you to use Windows Authentication based on file permissions on the physical disk. The permissions on the physical file of a page determine how Authentication occurs and who's allowed access to a page. This option requires that EVERY request in the virtual directory has a physical page on disk - any non-page backed requests will result in a 404 error.
