    Password Protect Intranet

    I have been working on a new intranet site for the College using Joomla running on wamp. We now want to provide parents who register access to this intranet but only if they supply the correct username and password, which we provide.

    It's simple to do on IIS as we use this for pupils remote access to files but i haven't been able to get joomla working correctly with IIS hence it being on wamp.

    The setup i want is a link from our website, through our SG using port forwarding then for them to be asked for a username/password which will auth with AD.

    Is there an easy way of doing this or should i just spend my time getting it to work on IIS?

    You could investigate apache's mod_auth_ldap or mod_auth_ntlm modules, but I've never used either (not successfully, anyway).

    something like this works on linux if you use mod_ldap ( should just adjust for windows)

    Code:
    <VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName servername.com
        DocumentRoot /var/www/vhosts/path
        ErrorLog /var/www/vhosts/path/logs/error_log
        CustomLog /var/www/vhosts/path/logs/access_log combined
        <Directory /var/www/vhosts/path/html>
    	#AllowOverride All
            Options All ExecCGI -Indexes
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
    
            # LDAP Authentication & Authorization is final; do not check other databases
            AuthLDAPAuthoritative on
            # Do basic password authentication in the clear
            AuthType Basic
            # The name of the protected area or "realm"
            AuthName "servername"
            # Active Directory requires an authenticating DN to access records
            AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=LDAP User,cn=Users,dc=example,dc=college,dc=internal"
            AuthLDAPBindPassword PASSWORD
            # The LDAP query URL
            AuthLDAPURL ldap://192.168.x.x:389/cn=users,dc=example,dc=college,dc=internal?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=*)
           	require valid-user
        </Directory>
    </VirtualHost>
