I have a sitecol with anonymous access. I have a console code that uses client-object-model to query from a particular list in that site collection. This was working fine. But recently I had to disable windows integrated authentication on that webapplication. After that, the console code is not able retrieve data from the list (gets 401).

Question is, is there a way to keep the windows integrated auth disabled and some how allow access to query for that one list?

Typically, when you have the need to access content both as Anonymous/Forms and Windows, you usually have to extend the web application to a new port\hostheader combination and enable Windows Authentication on that. Both web applications still point to the same data so there are no synchronization issues.

Here is a short explanation of the approach
