When I use the DnnAuthenticate token in my new Web API service I cant seem to sort out how to get authentication functioning. The service behaves as expected if IAllowAnonymous.
When attempting to pass a NetCredential of the DNN username and password with cookies enabled via httpclient I get a 500 server error.
Trying the same in my browser I see the following:
Password Retrieval is not enabled
