Hi all, I'd like some advice as to best methods to takle this project I'm undertaking.

I work for a small company, and have decided to create a cusomised database with a php frountend.  We have a server running Win 2k Server with IIS 5 and MsSQL.  Since then I have installed php 5.1.4 and PEAR.  I have created the database and am now working on the framework and some of the coding for the application.  Now I know that what I want to do isn't security concious however is how everyone wants it done.  Is it possible to use Windows Authentication to access the application and create sessions for each user?  Also as IIS 5 doesn't support some services without having Global Variables On (Which I don't want) can I use the windows Authentication in Apache, and would it be easy to port what I have done so far from IIS to Apache.

Thanks in Advance.

Thinking Further, which may help you to help me, as the users are logged on already, authentication isn't really needed, however to record the sessions and secure users from accessing specific parts of the database, the application must retrive the user name from the Windows user list and work out who's using it.  I have created a sessions MsSQL DB that can store the user names and usage level.  So what I need to know is what functions I'd need to create for it and can I use Apache to host this.

Thanks

I have decided that I will be implementing using the Apache server, can I retrieve the data from the Microsoft Access Token built when a User logs on, and use this for Authentication?

Any help would be greatly apreciated.

Hi I have found out that php does not implement any support for Windows users or groups, for anyone else wondering about this sort of configuration read this article http://www.microsoft...p.mspx?mfr=true

Good Luck
