To setup Windows Authentication you must set up two separate websites in the web server - one is the SitefinityStsWebApp and the other is the Sitefinity CMS instance that will accept the claims from the STS. You must set the authentication type of SitefinityStsWebApp either to Windows or to Basic.
NOTE: If you do not want to use your corporate active directory, you must create a user in the default provider with the same username as the login name for your windows account.
The user must have backend access and administration right.
For more information, see Administration: Create and delete users.
NOTE: If you do not want to use your corporate active directory, enter Default.
