Depends on what you mean by "supported"... If you're looking at using jForum's login screens and having it authenticated against LDAP with a minimum of information copied to the jForum user DB, there is an LDAPAuthenticator class that can be used.
If you're looking for a complete SSO situation, there is a simple way that works with a lot of web app servers. That is to do the following:
Use their LDAP SSO security implimentation (E.g. Tomcat's LDAP realm implimentation).
Secure the jForum web-app using standard web.xml security constriants.
Then configure jForum to use the RemoteUserSSO class.
This has some issues like not allowing anonymous access and not passing detailed LDAP info into jForum.
If you need something more complex, it's not that hard to write your own LDAP SSO implimentation. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
Probably... I know people have gotten it to work against Active Directory as well as general LDAP services. Novell's always been more LDAP compliant than MS so it should work. See the documentation here for details:
I have configured the GlobalSystems.properties file with the relevant LDAP config information but I am unable to login to jForum using my Novell username and password. Is there anyway of checking to see if this information is correct using jForum or can I turn on max debugging to see what is going on.
All I get is invalid username and password on the login screen.

It's a great pity.
we have up to 10.000 users in our AD.
Has anyone an plugin which create a jforum account, if a user login first time in forum?
is the jforums account for any single user required?
i want to handle permissions only with AD groups. [originally posted on jforum.net by Bjoern]
FWIW, I've used Tomcat's LDAP Realm and standard Forms based web security to authenticate against AD. This plus the RemoteUserSSO implementation, may get you close to what you want. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
