You are the one being vague. You are not being very forthcoming. That page provides detailed,
step-by-step configuration instructions. As I said, the page assumes Tomcat is running on
a Windows machine but that may be necessary for Windows authentication to work. I haven't
tested it and performing that testing is at the end of a long to do list. There is nothing
stopping you from testing this.

You appear to have missed the section entitled "built-in Tomcat support" which is an exact
match for what you are looking for.
