This Plugin will be very useful, but What with the newbie users who are not logged yet, if they use Outlook or Webmail the Plugin are Welcome! but if your plan to use Pronto! as mail agent, or use XMPP or SIP only, the things goes wrong!.

I just wrote a new external authenticator that:

if (auth is successful)
    cache the external auth password into the CGP app password
    enable the CGP app password

John, Would you be interested in sharing this authenticator? Is it for a AD
server syncing to a Linux-based CGPro server? It's exactly what I was
talking to a tech at CommuniGate the other day about. It would be perfect if
you used the LDAP=>bind command to authenticate against AD and then if it's
successful, assign that password to the communigate internal password. This
would also allow us to use Pronto for webmail, since as it stands now, I
cannot authenticate since our CGPro accounts don't have a password in them.

Darren:

Have you made any head-way on the Kerberos part? If not, I can probably be
of some assistance and I've really dug into how AD uses Kerberos and how it
all jives. Let me know if you need help, or at least let me know where you
stand on it.

Then, I have a nightly process that disables the CGP app password for
each user (forcing them to go to the external authenticator).


So:

1) if they change their external password, then within 24 hours they'll
have to start using that password in CGP.

2) They will, hopefully, only have to consult the external
authenticator
once every 24 hours (not including failed auths).

3) If the external auth system fails, I can turn off the nightly
disable
check, and they can continue using the app password until things get
better.


Am I on the right track for what you're having a problem with?
