NTLM Single Sign-On Support

FileCloud supports NTLM for User Login through SSO.


For NTLM SSO to work, the FileCloud Server must be connected to the AD domain.

Web Server Settings

  1. Ensure the file "mod_authn_ntlm.so" exists in the c:\xampp\apache\modules folder
  2. Edit the Webserver configuration file at c:\xampp\apache\conf\httpd.conf and add the following section.

    <Location /auth >
        #AllowOverride None
        AuthName "Private location"
        AuthType SSPI
        NTLMAuth On
        NTLMAuthoritative On
                Require valid-user
                #require sspi-user EMEA\group_name
                Require user "ANONYMOUS LOGON"
                Require user "NT-AUTORIT√ĄT\ANONYMOUS-ANMELDUNG"
        # use this to add the authenticated username to you header
        # so any backend system can fetch the current user
        # rewrite_module needs to be loaded then
        RewriteEngine On
        RewriteCond %{LA-U:REMOTE_USER} (.+)
        RewriteRule . - [E=RU:%1]
        RequestHeader set X_ISRW_PROXY_AUTH_USER %{RU}e
  3. Ensure the module is loaded by ensuring the following line is enabled and not disabled.

    LoadModule auth_ntlm_module modules/mod_authn_ntlm.so

  4. Ensure you have the "auth" folder available at WWWROOT
  5. Restart Webserver
  6. In your browser open http://<HOSTNAME>/auth URL, it will automatically login if everything works correctly. Make sure in your browser SSO has been enabled for the site.
