I would like to be able to authenticate my users against an Active Directory but I'm not sure how to integrate that without breaking the administration part of the MWPSK. Has anyone done this integration and/or can anyone offer any suggestions as to how I should proceed with this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I would also like to use this as an intranet site and use Active Directory. Anyone have any advice?

You can change the xmlMemebrship provider in the web.config to an AD membership provider

this should take care of things for you.

if you need to add some code o all pages to handle your own memebrship/role logic you can add it to

app_code/controls/pagebaseclass.cs all the pages in the site inherit this page
