Apache::AuthenNTLM advice neededby Jonathan (Curate)
|on Jul 24, 2003 at 14:14 UTC||Need Help??|
Jonathan has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been given an installation of Apache/mod_perl (Solaris) with Apache::AuthenNTLM and asked to write a mod_perl Authentication handler. The handler will take a http request from another web server (Oracle again on Solaris) validate the request using the AuthenNTLM module and then send back a response with a cookie string containing the original users NT login details.
As the client is not directly an Internet Explorer session, I guess I would need to create an AuthenNTLM instance change the inputs to point to the orginal browser and validate it that way. But there's no mention of doing anything like this in the docs.
Has any one managed to do anything like this? - if so a sample handler would be a great help
Can AuthenNTLM be made to work via a proxy?
I don't think this is possible but I'm certainly no HTTP/Apache-mod_perl expert. Am I on a fools errand?
