RE: Authentication in a domain

Hi Edward,

Ok - so I know I can get LDAP lookups working, but should I use LDAP or
Kerberos? As I understand it LDAP is for directory lookups (phone #s,
contacts etc), but Kerberos is intended for account authentication?

Thanks,

Adrian

Yup. LDAP, or Kerberos. I believe apache & svn support both.

It might be tough to figure it out though, unless you're really good
with that sort of stuff. So if you've never done it before, I'll
suggest a good bit of research & experiment time.
