Right now 3 protocols (4 if you count LDAPS) work.  Kerberos, ChangePW, 
and LDAP.  LDAP is the most mature of course.

The DNS sort of can work.  DHCP has a long way to go.

For configuring the Kerberos and changepw stuff you might want to look 
here for the properties that you'll need to add to the environment 
section of the server.xml:

For more info on Kerberos:

For more info on Changepw:

Jose we need your help with this product as both a user and hopefully a 
contributor/committer.  Right now the support for non LDAP protocols is 
pretty bad and as you can see the documentation is dispursed.

We'd love to have you involved.
