You can configure the settings for authentication providers by using the Authentication Providers page.

  1. On the top link bar, click Application Management.

  2. On the Application Management page, in the Application Security section, click Authentication providers.

  3. On the Authentication Providers page, click the zone name for the authentication provider whose settings you want to configure.

  4. On the Edit Authentication page, in the Authentication Type section, select one of the following options:

    Windows

    To use Windows authentication, select this option.

    1. In the Anonymous Access section, to enable anonymous access for all sites within the Web application, select the Enable anonymous access check box. To disable anonymous access for all sites within the Web application, clear the Enable anonymous access check box.

      NoteNote:
      If you enable anonymous access here, anonymous access can still be denied at the site collection level or site level. However, if you disable anonymous access here, it is disabled at all levels within the Web application.
    2. In the IIS Authentication Settings section, to use either Kerberos or NT LAN Manager (NTLM) authentication, select the Integrated Windows authentication check box and then select one of the following options:

    • Negotiate (Kerberos)

    • NTLM

    1. To use basic authentication (passwords are sent in clear text), select the Basic authentication (password is sent in clear text) check box.

    2. In the Client Integration section, under Enable Client Integration, select one of the following options:

    • Yes. Features that start client applications according to document types will be enabled. This option might not work correctly with some types of forms authentication.

    • No. Features that start client applications according to document types will be disabled. Users must download documents and then upload them after making changes.

    Forms

    To use forms authentication, select this option.

    1. In the Anonymous Access section, to enable anonymous access for all sites within the Web application, select the Enable anonymous access check box. To disable anonymous access for all sites within the Web application, clear the Enable anonymous access check box.

      NoteNote:
      If you enable anonymous access here, anonymous access can still be denied at the site collection level or site level. However, if you disable anonymous access here, it is disabled at all levels within the Web application.
    2. In the Membership Provider Name section, in the Membership provider name box, type the name of the membership provider.

      NoteNote:
      The membership provider must be correctly configured in the Web.config file for the IIS Web site that hosts SharePoint content on each Web server. The membership provider must also be added to the Web.config file for the IIS site that hosts Central Administration.
      TipTip:
      Optionally, you can add the membership provider to the Web.config file for Central Administration so that you can conveniently manage the provider's users from Central Administration.
    3. In the Role Manager Name section, in the Role manager name box, you can optionally enter the name of the role manager.

      NoteNote:
      The role manager must be correctly configured in the Web.config file for this zone.
    4. In the Client Integration section, under Enable Client Integration, select one of the following options:

    • Yes. Features that start client applications according to document types will be enabled. This option may not work correctly with some types of forms authentication.

    Web single sign on

    To use single sign-on authentication, select this option.
