I’ve looked at this KB article: How to configure the ASP.NET Membership/Roles Provider http://support.Winhost.com/KB/a619/how-to-configure-the-aspnet-membershiproles-provider.aspx I have Visual Studio 2010. I have uploaded a SQL DB that has the aspnetdb structures in it and my app. (I’m using example: “Walkthrough: Using Authentication Service with Silverlight Business Application” http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee942449(v=vs.91).aspx) appears to work fine. I am able to login, add a user, etc. My problem is that when I use the Web Site Authentication Tool. I go to the menus and choose “Project; ASP.NET Configuration”, up comes the Web Site Administration Tool, but it is using my local Application: / and my Current User Name: [is my local user name]. This, of course, is useless and generates an error when going to the Security tab. My web.config file (LocalSqlConnection) is pointing to the remote SQL DB on the Winhost server. My understanding is that I should be able to use the Web Site Admin Tool to access permissions on the remote server. What am I missing?
