How can I setup windows authentication between a Windows Server 2003 running IIS6 and Windows Server 2008 running SQL Server 2008, when both servers are standalone non-domain servers.

I want the sites on my 2003 server to connect to the databases on the 2008 server, but I don't want to store credentials in the connection strings.


Rather simple, create two accounts that are identical on both machines (same username/password). Set the app pool identity to that user and bam you have integrated authentication. That is all...
