Creating Users

You use aspects of Windows-based authentication to allow specific users who have provided a domain login to access your application or parts of your application. Because it can use this type of authentication, ASP.NET makes working with applications that are deployed in an intranet environment quite easily. If a user has logged on to a local computer as a domain user, she will not need to be authenticated again when accessing a network computer in that domain.

The following steps show you how to create a user. It is important to note that you must have sufficient rights to be authorized to create users on a server. If you are authorized, the steps to create users are as follows:

1.  In Windows 7 or 8, choose Start -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management or if you are using Windows Server 2003 or 2008 or 2012, choose Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management.It manages and controls the resources on the local web server.

2.  Expand the System Tools node.

3.  Expand the Local Users and Groups node.

4.  Select the Users folder.
