Hi guys
One quick question for u guys...WE have a single sign on enabled in our environment, Now i have a web application which Has Sametime enabled in some of the pages. The user logs in the application and using this information Is there any way to pass on this login information to the sametime, so that he is automatically logged in sametime also in the web page...

I would say they both have different session entirely and will not share the login information.. Don't ask me why. As it is logical to me as user logged into sametime server already and never need to be re-authenticated.. but the desktop client is not a browser..So you have different set of authentication presented

Excerpt from notes.net

The following Sametime applications support SSO:
Java Connect client
Meeting Room client
ST Links
Java Toolkit
COM Toolkit
ST Discussion database (Sametime Token only)
ST Team Rooms (Sametime Token only)

Note that the Sametime Connect client for Desktop (C++ client) does not support SSO.  If you log into the Sametime Connect client for Desktop and then attempt to attend a meeting, you will need to log in.

Hemanth,
I have made the web page sametime enabled. You must be knowing that we use


stlinkslogin(<username>,<password>,token)


This login information i don't want to give, as i already login in the webpage .. is it possible to send the information i get to authenticate myself to enter the webpage to this stlinkslogin method


Hope i am clear

So you are having problem as you jump from web page to web page.. and ST is asking you to re-login everytime.. Is that what you meant ?

Yes , it's possible, but I think you must copy some files to the server (manually).  Isn't that in the redbook ?  We use this between Quickplace and Sametime ourselves.

And both servers must share the same LTPA token - this may be a problem if you have an R6 server using Internet Sites and the R5 server, using the old webconfiguration.  I haven't solved this one yet myself.

cheers,

Tom

Yes, you can do this.  You need to pass the ST toem in the login, instead of user name and password.  In orderto pass thr ST token, you will need to open a page that uses the hidden-design sametime agents in the WQO.  I don't recall exactly how it passes the token, it might have been a cookie in one version, I think the sample databases (discussion, teamroom) actually have the token as a hidden field on the page.
