Is it possible to get active Directory to Auth users? or any other process?

Thanks

i don't know much about active directory.
are the users of active directory the same configured as windows user on the machine where HFS runs ?

I asked the same feature almost a year from now... :) and you put it in to-do list, it's NT Domain Authentification, like in VNC.
Please, please... :) :)

that's what i was trying to understand, if it was the same request.
the reason why this is waiting for so long is that it is not easy to do.
i should learn how to read users, and i guess it is not easy for security matters.
also reading VNC sources is not a 5 minutes task.
it would be much easier if someone give me a code returning the list of users with passwords.

I'll see if I can chase up some code for you.

If HFS server is installed on a "active directory member", server or workstation, domain users are machine authenticated users (there's no need of password sync or user replica)

Could HFS manage/recognize the local machine authenticated users instead of its own ?

Thanks for your answer

much more sense
thus, instead of a function to get the list, i need a function to authenticate :)
any help is welcome, as before

I guess that this page http://www.agnisoft.com/white_papers/active_directory.asp (http://www.agnisoft.com/white_papers/active_directory.asp) has everything needed to to AD authentication....

My pleasure...

By the way, HFS is just great and would be even greater with AD authentication  :P

may be interresting for closed networks, but I think this will complicate a lot useradmin of hfs.

We may need groups for users on internet. It may be necessary to distinguish by ip(-range) which login-system to use.

bacter do all filter you ask into javascript language, you can use cookie and testing it for every user, no more groupe will be necessary

mars:

groups for users are not a simple question about the origin of users (internet- or intranet-users).

I think for example you have foldertrees for a programming- or documentation project.
There would be an number (say 14,30,70) of users working on the project-group.
Some of them (founders) may access all, upload and download in all subfolders, others, like 'coders',
may access all except some folder with special documents, and upload in some folders only,
'illustrators' dont access code-folders and only upload in other folders, a forth type of members
of the group will only have access- and download rights. .. ..

Administration of the access-rights in the different folders could be simplified, if users belong to groups(and subgroups).
Supose a user belongs to a subgroup project.coders or project.founder. This implies, that he belongs to project.
Hence, in the filesystem, you may give access to 'project' on the first element of the folder-tree, limiting upload to project.founder.
in a folder in next level of the tree, you give access only to folder.founder, folder.coder and upload only to folder.coder .. .. ..

So the group system allows having to add only one or two entries to give access or upload rights, you don't need to specify in each
level (folder) a list of 12, 30, 60 users. A user who belongs to a group (by being an element of the subgroup) automatically has the asigned rights
to the (sub-)group in the corresponding folders.

That's the thing for creating user-groups.

What you look for here is not a Web http server but a server ftp with a Web interface.

Two solutions are for you

1 The php with sql.
 
2 A server ftp managing the accesses system and in that I direct you to this link where you will find your happiness.

Én amolyan indítás kori vagy ütemezett gyakori  import export megoldást választanék egyszerűbb mint le programozni csak import lehetőség kell bele.

I would choose a simpler program than some kind of initial or scheduled frequent import export solution
only
import option
