    Login page on IWP

      Title

      Login page on IWP

      Post

      Attempting to create IWP under the following:

      If the Guest account is the only account with the Instant Web Publishing extended privilege enabled, web users automatically log in with the Guest account, and they do not see the login page.

      I've made the Guest account Active and created a Privilege Set which allows Acess via IWP.

      But, when I try to close out, I get a message saying I have to have a full access account.

      Again what I'm trying to do is to set up IWP so that when someone accesses the db, they skip the sign in and go right to the "home page" of the db.  I will then use ReLogin to further restrict access.

      Where have I gone wrong?

          The dialog is just asking you to enter an account name and password to a full access acount isn't it? That's SOP for any time you use manage security to modify accounts... It doesn't actually require that the guest account be full access...

            This is the message I get.

            I don't want the Guest Account to be full access.  I just want to be able to have users access the db without going through the account name and password.  But, If I check a full access account, I get the Guest/Account when users access the db.

              I'm sorry, but I don't see the problem from my end. I see a list of accounts with two active accounts--one admin/full access and one guest/limited access.

              But, If I check a full access account, I get the Guest/Account when users access the db.

              Isn't that what you want here?

                Sorry I can't communicate better.  This is the screen I want to eliminate.

                  I understood that, But your previous posted comment: "But, If I check a full access account, I get the Guest/Account when users access the db."

                  Seemed to indicate that this is working for you. What do you meant by "check a full access account"? I understood that to mean you had to have both an active guest and admin account before this worked.

                    Thank you for your patience.

                    The "Instant Web Publishing Guide" on page 19 says that 

                    If the Guest account is the only account with the Instant Web Publishing extended privilege enabled, web users automatically log in with the Guest account, and they do not see the login page. 

                    That's what I want to do.  So, my next step is to have "the Guest account as the only account with the Instant Web Publishing privilege enabled.

                    So I go to File>Manage>Security.  That's when I get the Manage Security box shown above.  If I deselect Admin, thus assuming that the Guest Account will be the only one left, and click OK, I get the message shown below.

                    If I select the Admin box, then when accessing the db, I get the Open Database box shown above.

                    Somewhere in this whole thing is something simple that I am missing.

                      Check this key phrase:

                      with the Instant Web Publishing extended privilege enabled,

                      If you open the admin account and click Edit. Is that extended privilege enabled? If you clear it does this now work for you?

                      I believe you need to leave the admin account enabled as you have to have admin access when not using a browser so that you can continue to make changes to the file. Bu the extended privilege must be disabled, if I understand this quote correctly, before the log in password will be suppressed when a browser is used to access the database.
