Dear YAF forum members,
just set up YAF 2.2.2 on Windows Server 2012 with IIS 8 and SQL Server 2008 R2.
The server's IP is public and registered to a domain name.
Everything runs fine, but as long as I didn't set up the forum completely, I don't want to make it public.
So I changed the IIS Authentication settings:
Disabled anonymous auth.
Enabled standard and Windows auth.
Form authentication is enabled obviously by a setting in web.config that's coming with YAF.
But now I have the following problem:
After entering the web site's URL I'll be prompted for username/password - ok.
Then the YAF start page appears.
But when I want to login, no matter if I use the admin or a test user account, the page says (translated from german):
"Welcome guest... To use all funtcions you have to login...."
After switching back to the default auth settings, login works again but the site is public.
Isn't there a way to have the site password protected AND working until it is ready?
