Subject RE: Help: Windows Server on Linux Client
Date Wed, 08 Dec 2004 01:51:24 GMT
Hello!

I already enabled "Anonymous Access" but to no success... =|
I think the problem is in IIS ? because http://server:8080/myApp
is working in linux but request.getRemoteUser() is null... well
ofcourse,
the user did not login inside the domain... how can a linux user login
inside
the domain? If I make use of realm, the problem is solved but my URL
includes
8080 port number?

I want to make 8080 disappear in linux... http 401 authentication
problem occurs
if I use http://server/myApp... still I cannot make use of realm because
how to know
I the client is using linux?

Thanks!

Aris,

Do want the only people that use the app to be domain users?

If so, then you will need to implement a different security system if
users will be on non windows machines.

One option is the authentication roles in Tomcat. Down side is that the
database of users will have to be maintained separate from AD. Pro is
the 
users do not have to be in AD.   JDBCRealm

Check out:

http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/tomcat-5.0-doc/realm-howto.html

Also look at:

http://jakarta.apache.org/tomcat/faq/windows.html

If you do not need to restrict the access to the application then enable
the Anonymous access.

Thanks for your reply Brad!

Inside IIS (myApp virtual directory), I have disabled "Anonymous access"
and checked "integrated windows
authentication"... myApp gets the user domain login name first and
verify in active directory if the user exists...
if the user exists, then myApp will work..

if in linux, should I enable "anonymous access" ?

I will also try url with 8080 port included and see if it works in
linux... http://localhost:8080/myApp

Hi,

I would be looking at your IIS permissions.  Are you using 'Anonymous
Access' in IIS?  It sounds like your Windows clients are actually
authenticating under a domain account - not using the same Anonymous
Access that Linux will try to use by default.

If so, have you allocated the "IUSR_<servername>" account to your
webapps directory through Windows Explorer?

To confirm this - try un-integrating with IIS (temporarily) and see if
the problem still happens.  If not, then you know it's not a Tomcat
issue.
