JForum & Active Directory - Problems with configuration

Hello,

we are planning to use JForum as an internal discussion platform.
As we already have several java-based j2ee programs running on our JBoss servers, we plan to use our JBoss Servers (JBoss version 4.0.2) for JForum, too.

We tried to configure Single Sign On, using our Active Directory, but failed miserably ;) - we sort of had a single sign on (no register/login buttons anymore), but we had only "Anonymous" Access.

Here is what we've configured in SystemGlobals.properties:


This is about all we've configured.
Are there any major flaws in our configuration?
Are further configurations (other config files of jforum, jboss, ...) necessary?
Other suggestions?


Thanks in advance for your help!

When you use SSO, JForum indeed disable the "Register" link, as users should come from somewhere else (your SSO).

As of anonymous only access and users, check if you have any records inside jforum_users and jforum_user_groups.

Take a look at the SSO implementation you're using (RemoteUserSSO), to understand how it works.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
