    Moodle - User Authentication

    Hi All!

    How do you direct Moodle to authenticate logged-on users on a domain network.

    MS Server 2003 - Active directory (Primary)
    MS Server 2003 - Moodle Server (Member)

    Can this be done?

    By "Authenticate logged on users" what exactly do you mean?
    Are you asking how existing network users can log on using their AD credentials, or do you want users to be able to go to Moodle and be automatically logged in with their account details?

    Single Sign On would be terrific!

    But I could always drop to the next best thing, which is using their domain credentials to logon to Moodle.

    I gues this would help you.

    NTLM authentication - MoodleDocs

    LDAP certainly works fine here for us.

    Yes. Get your Domain Controller to act as an LDAP server (it's a setting someplace), then get Moodle to authenticate against that.

    Sorry for the slow reply. The NTLM link will allow you set up intergrated sign in (using their Windows Accounts without them having to type a new login etc).
    You'll need to consider how they access outside of school - so possibly LDAP as well as NTLM or maybe email authentication (depends on your requirements)
