Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I need to protect an IIS site using forms authentication. I need the login page to query the active directory users, but I haven't been able to find much information on this.

I just need a simple login form that users in the company can login to using their AD credentials.

Any guidance?
