Hi all,

On a windows 10 PC, I have the following code that will load up a windows authenticated IIS page and successfully create the PDF.

However, the code doesn't work on a windows 2012 R2 IIS?
same authentication set on both IIS's using the same Active directory.


Code
Quote:
EO.Pdf.Runtime.AddLicense(mykey)
EO.Pdf.HtmlToPdf.Options.PageSize = EO.Pdf.PdfPageSizes.A4;
EO.Pdf.HtmlToPdf.ConvertUrl(url, FullPath);



Error
HTTP Error 401.2 - Unauthorized
You are not authorized to view this page due to invalid authentication headers.

any ideas?
Thanks
Dave

I've gone the ASPXToPDF1.RenderAsPDF(); way instead.

Hi,

We have relied your email on 8/28 regarding this issue. ASPXToPDF may resolve ASP.NET Form authentication issue for you because it automatically duplicates Forms authentication cookie. However it does not have that capability for Windows authentication because Windows authentication is not done through cookies.

Thanks!

thank you, i'm getting somewhere now with the ASPxPDF and this is working on my server.

i'm struggling to find the documentation thou on how to place page breaks in my PDFs (e.g. i'm printing a large html document and i want page breaks at set points).

My solution to 401.2 return with a webforms app was to add the below to the web.config file

<location path="folderPath/pdf_template.aspx">
<system.webServer>
<security>
<authentication>
<anonymousAuthentication enabled="true" />
<windowsAuthentication enabled="true">
<providers>
<clear />
<add value="NTLM" />
</providers>
</windowsAuthentication>
</authentication>
</security>
</system.webServer>
</location>

Hope this is useful for someone.
