View Full Version : Alpha Five with Active Directory

Is there a way to integrate your alpha five with AD username and passwords?

If anyone has any way to have users log in with their username and passwords for AD, and then have that authenticate them to Alpha Five using either the same or a different set of credentials could they put me on the right path please.

Perhaps [Use Windows Logon] in the Security Suite will do this?
I've only used Desktop Security so far.

Is this in V11? and will use the current username / password credentials? I was hoping i could build say a custom ASPX page published by my Threat management gateway, so people can use Single sign on using the same windows username / password authenticated by LDAP to connect to webmail, sharepoint and alpha five without having to ender the details more than once.

The only part I have trouble with is the ASPX program. If you can give me a hash value (MD5) from your LDAP server, I can make A5 single sign on. I have it running on a client location, but they wrote the ASP code (and gave it to me).

We dont have a dedicated LDAP server, its all in Active directory.

We use version 10.5 of web server, no desktop.

Active Directory, that's what I meant, and for web apps.

sorry, seem to have lost me a little, do you mean a password hash? As far as i was aware they are unviewable in AD by design?

The ASP code provides a MD5 hash of the active directory username (an email address) of the person logged in to their terminal. It never reveals the AD password.
