    Windows NT Authentication Auto-login

    Hari_639
      Hi,

      If we use APEX Listener, then would it be possible to provide auto-login facility to APEX applications based on user-NT id's

      Regards,
      Hari

          Hi Hari,

          I guess this won't work with the current release of the APEX Listener, as it doesn't support the CGI-Environment necessary for such operations. You can follow a similar issue (NTLM-authentication) here: {thread:id=2125018}
          There exist some Java NTLM-Implementations you could try use to create a servlet that does the header-exchange for you. Currently, there seems to be no out-of-the-box-solution for that issue. I bookmarked the following page for the case the problem may become urgent:
          http://jcifs.samba.org/src/docs/ntlmhttpauth.html

          I was hoping to find the time to create that kind of servlet, but as there's no customer need at the moment (all NTLM-users still use OHS), there hasn't been an assignment for that yet. Perhaps one of the following Listener releases includes the support for custom header exchange.

            Hi Udo,

            Thanks for the reply. Our customer is asking for auto-login based on NT User credentials. So I'm just trying to know different alternatives to achieve this. No reliable solutions I found though yet :(
