We just asked me a simple question I could not answer : How works a SSO Authentication with Active Directory (AD) and FileMaker?

Configuration of the SSO Authentication was not a problem! But the complete process is still obscure to me! I found the figures of the communications between FMPA, FMS and AD in some technical documentations but how it works? Wich protocols and Ports are used to?

When a user ask to open a fmp7 file, the FMS check the user's group in the AD server or is the FMPA who knows the user's group?

 

Thanks for all information you could give me.
