Title

External Authentication and FM Go, WebDirect and PHP Web Publishing

Post

Hi Guys,

I want to change several files to external authentication using Active Directory for easier user maintanence.

But I got a few questions about it. So far I got it working on clients using Filemaker Pro.

But my question is, how can I get it to work on the following:

         
  • Filemaker Go (when I use the same login that works on Filemaker Pro, it will not work on Go.
  •      
  • WebDirect (Again, then login working on Filemaker Pro, does not work using WebDirect)
  •      
  • PHP Web Publishing (for security purposes I might want to create a separate account for this directly in the Filemaker File, but is it possible to use the AD here as well?)
  •      
  • Filemaker Pro on machines not member of the Active Directory (havent tested, just want to know if it is possible?)

There doesnt seem to be a lot of setiings regarding this on FM Server or in the file security settings, and since it is working for FM Pro client, I might need to setup something in the AD for it to work on the rest?

Benjamin
