    Apache passthrough AD group authentication

    How do I get a 'passthrough' authentication to AD groups with apache - so that the browser does not a popup username/password box on windows clients ?

    I've been using LDAP so far, it works but users get an extra hassle of adding their username and password.

    Code:
    <Directory /var/www/vhosts/sitename/html>
            Options All ExecCGI -Indexes
            Order allow,deny
            Allow from all
            AuthLDAPAuthoritative on
            AuthType Basic
            AuthName "staff"
            AuthLDAPBindDN "cn=LDAP_BIND,cn=Users,dc=college,dc=internal"
            AuthLDAPBindPassword secret
            AuthLDAPURL ldap://server:389/dc=college,dc=internal?sAMAccountName?sub?(objectClass=*)
            AuthName "secure"
            require group cn=Staff,ou=staff,dc=college,dc=internal
    
    </Directory>

    Re: Apache passthrough AD group authentication

    It is a windows server, or a *nix server?

    If *nix, kerberos, winbind and mod_auth_ntlm_winbind are your friends.

    If windows then mod-auth-sspi is your friend.

    Indeed, you must use NTLM authentication if you want authentication to be transparent.

    I'd been avoiding seting up winbind on this box, but the webmanager wanted smb access anyway

    cheers.
