Sign In with Windows Authentication

You can enable Responder Web to use the computer's Windows Authentication login to auto-log in, rather than prompt for a user-provided login.

IMPORTANT: The user names in the Rx_Users table must match the windows authentication logins.
  1. Open the web.config file located in: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Responder\Web.config.
  2. In Web.config, locate the following text:
    <authentication mode="Forms">
          <forms loginUrl="~/login.aspx" protection="All" slidingExpiration="true" timeout="30" />
  3. Change the authentication mode="Forms" to authentication mode="Windows." Save Web.config.
  4. Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  5. Expand the Default Web Site node.
  6. Select the Responder Web Site node.
  7. Double-click Authentication.
  8. Select Anonymous Authentication and click Disable.
  9. Select Window Authentication and click Enable.
  10. Find and select the Services node.
  11. Select the Authentication in the Features View pane.
  12. Click on Open Feature in Actions pane.
  13. Ensure the Anonymous authentication is enabled.
  14. Restart IIS.
    If you continue to receive the error after IIS is restarted, clear the internet cache on Client machines.
Users who access Responder Web are now logged in automatically with Windows authentication.
