    Forum & Active Directory

    Does anyone know of any forum software that integrates well with active directory without loads of work?

    I've just had an email asking if at all possible.

    We're using phpBB - which links into AD/LDAp easily enough...

    Going to say the dirty word "Sharepoint"... but then again, history says I would being a fan boy! LOL.

    Seriously though...
    AD aware (obviously!), free (well the Foundation Ver is).... depends what and where you are planning to use it really

    Actually stuart has a point about Sharepoint. Works best with it and will soon be free!

    Is phpBB working at all or is it just the authentication

    May be easier to download WAMP ...

    There has been a free version around a while... WSS3 was free (the baby brother of Sharepoint 2007), and WSS3 aka Sharepoint Foundation 2010 is free. The full product Im not sure on costs of at the moment - still trying to get my head around the licensing announcements. Head over to the Learning Env section, I have posted in there about Forums before - and I think there is some bits on my blog about it too. Has to be said, the forum support in 2010 (both versions) is a lot better. You can do "Mod" control using content approval...

    I will go back and sit in my fan boy corner now.... i dont usually post in this area lol! :-0

    If it uses the same way that samba does to connect to ad then you have to change the ntlm security settings as win7/svr 2k8 uses a higher version. But more info about it on Google
