ASP password protection needed

ASPLogin substitute

Currently I'm using ASPLogin Pro to password protect several pages on an IIS setup. However, I'm being forced to move to a different system that does not allow for .dll files to be registered (something ASPLogin requires)

So, my search for password protection through ASP. I have to use a database to store username/password (16,000+ of the little buggers). Any suggestions for a store-bought product? I know enough ASP to follow the code somewhat, but don't have the time and resources to build my own system from scratch. Any help would be appreciated...

It isn't complicated to setup. Someone with experience could do it in a few hours.

You might want to consider hiring it out. Nothing is securer than using a database for login protection.

txbakers is right. I know you say you don't have time to build your own login script, but it really doesn't take long at all.

Asking someone to quickly do it for you would probably be cheaper than buying a bit of software.

I created a login using ASP/SQL Server for a couple of sites we built......one of which has almost 13,000 people in it. So far (touch wood), it has worked perfectly.

All details are stored in the DB, and, once logged in, a function is called on everypage to double check you are who you say you are. There is also session script in it, so if you do not do anything for 5-10 minutes, you are automatially logged out.
