    It's command line based.

    Goto command prompt, and get to the Fogcrypt directory then type

    Code:
    Fogcrypt yourpassword
    You should get a response like

    Code:
    F:\FOGCrypt>fogcrypt password
    
      Input string: password
      Passkey:      #############
      Output:       52498fbfb2bba2c02ec81c17036949b9
    Copy and paste the output string into fog in the password field and it will then allow Fog to add the machine to the domain.

    Also one gotcha with this which caught me out, you MUST have the microsoft support tools installed on the workstation that fog is adding to the network, specifically the program netdom.exe is needed to perform the domain functions.

    Mike.

    Have you got all the necessary files in the fogcrypt directory? there should be

    Fogcrypt.exe
    IniReaderObj.dll
    and a directory called etc which contains a configuration file.

    As long as you've got them all, there's no reason it shouldn't work.

    Mike.

    Open up the .tar download of fog in windows using winrar and extract the FOGCrypt directory to your C:\ Drive. Then use command prompt. The AD intergration guide on the wiki could be more in-depth like.

    It is recommended that you change the passkey for security. Have a look at the section Securing Active Directory Intergration on the wiki.
