    Moodle - NTLM Authentication Clarification

    Hi,

    I am looking at this guide about NTLM authentication - NTLM authentication - MoodleDocs

    Under Installation on 1.9 it says the following

    On IIS: turn on Integrated Authentication
    I am running IIS7, the only options i have for authentication are:

    Basic authentication
    Windows authentication
    Digest authentication
    Radius authentication

    Im not sure but has it been renamed in IIS7 or is the article incorrect?

    Which of the above do i need please?

    Many Thanks

    If I remember correctly it's Windows Authentication you need (it's been a while since I've used IIS)

    I agree, I suspect they mean Windows authentication.

    Hi i am back

    Does anyone know if it will work with basic Auth? Reason i am asking is our portal only supports basic auth and no auth.

    Thanks

    The problem with Basic is it'll sent passwords unencrypted. Something you probably want to avoid.

    Site Admin -> Security -> HTTP Security.

    Enable 'Use HTTPS for Logins'.

    Beware the scarey warnings.
