Hi, I think I may asked this qyestion few months ago, But I cannot find the responses, so sorry if I repeat myself. I would like to configure HN in the following way: Right now all our users of our facility have kerberos Id and passwords. We would like this to authenticate users who use HN. Here is how it should work: User comes to HN site. Before he is allowed to run HN scripts apache asks for his credentials. He fills his user Id and PWd and Apache verifies it. (This step is easy). if he is OK the apache passes his identity (for example in the REMOTE_USER env variable) to HN. If he is already registered user, he is authenticated and can read/post messages. If not then HN creates his HN user id when he logs on for the first time. Can this be done? I have succesfully configured other packages (RT for example) to work in this way. We will have to many users and we cannot register them by hand. Tomasz Wlodek | tel 631-344-7448 Brookhaven Laboratory, Building 510M | fax 631-344-7616 Upton NY 11973-5000 |
