For a Windows 2008 Server running in a Workgroup envrionment (no Active Directory), is it possible to create users for the purpose of authentication in a web service application that DO NOT have a GUI login as well?
Users created using Local Users and Groups can be used for authentication, but they automatically get permission to log on to the server and have a desktop as well.
I would like to create accounts which can only be used for authentication in an IIS hosted web service application. The application uses Windows Authentication to grant access.
The users will be connecting from other desktop machines with a web browser.
