I have followed all the suggestions mentioned at 'http://www.jforum.net/doc/Authenticators' to configure JForum authentication mechanism against an Active Directory in ou LAN, but with our success

Any ideas would be very helpful ???

Thanks

I'm not sure if the LDAP Autuenticator works fine with Active Directory - it was developed, but not very tested. If you know ldap programming, you may want to give a look at the source code.

An alternative is to look at Container level authentication. E.g. Tomcat has an LDAP authentication Realm class that works with AD. Other app containers probably have similar options.

You set this up and then "secure" your jforum directory with Web.xml security constraints.

Then enable RemoteUserSSO support.

The advantage here is that the container level AD support has a lot more people using it and therefore a lot more documentation/options available.
