          Hi Mohamed,

           

          For IIS you are going to want to disable Windows Authentication and enable Anonymous Authentication on the QlikView and QvAjaxZfc virtual directories.

           

          For Custom Directory to work, you need to change authentication in Security tab of the QlikView Server config from NTFS to DMS.

           

           

           

          After switching to DMS, you need to go to the QlikView Web Server settings and change the authentication tab to reflect the use of a custom directory.

           

          Change the type from ntlm to Custom User and set the login address to Alternate login page.  For the prefix parameter, make sure the prefix is the same name as the name of the custom directory you create.

           

           

           

          From a best practice point of view, custom directory is great for test and dev, but not a great solution for production because it decouples authentication from your enterprise or host application.

           

          Hope this helps.

              Thx Jeffrey,

               

              so for synthesize all this  you have to do this :

              first on IIS server make sure that you have this configuration on authentication part :

               

              QlikView virtual directorie:

                  Anonymous Authentication Enabled

                  Others Disabled

                      Login2.htm, web.config ,Login.htm , index.htm....

                            Anonymous Authentication Enabled

                            others Disabled

               

              QvAjaxZfc virtual directories:

                  Anonymous Authentication Enabled

                  others Disabled

                     autenticate.aspx , accesspoint.aspx ....

                            Anonymous Authentication Enabled
                            others Disabled

               

              after that you should to follow instructions for QV server and QV web server .

                    

              And i agree with you it's juste for testing using loadRunner , after that i will move to windows AD .

               

              And thx again Jeffrey i appreciate your help .
