Telligent Community can use an existing Microsoft .net-based web site utilizing .net's built-in forms authentication to enable remote authentication (single sign-on) and member auto-registration within Telligent Community. To configure shared .net forms authentication,
The web.config on the Telligent Community site will need to have the same machine key entry as the .NET application authenticating the user. The authentication element of the web.config should have the mode set to "Forms", and a forms sub-element with the name of the cookie coming from the authenticating .NET application and the matching domain.
<!-- <MachineKey> and <DescriptionKey> are unique values that have not been shown for clarity. These values should be the same as in the web.config of the .NET authenticating application. -->
<forms name="<CookieName>" cookieless="UseCookies" loginUrl="logon" protection="All" timeout="10080" slidingExpiration="false" domain="<Domain>"/>
<!--<CookieName> is the name of the cookie generated by the .NET authenticating application.-->
<!--<Domain> is the root domain of the .NET autenticating application and the root domain of the Telligent Community site. example: .telligent.com-->
