Dear experts,

I am designing an intranet application, and I would like to use the windows authentification on my intranet.

What are my options? Can I detect either the windows user or the current active directory user with php?

Thnx in advance :D

Please provide an explicit answer, as I have to admit I didn't fully understand following link:

so basically you are wanting the user to enter a password and a username upon reaching for example your local domain address http://10.1.2.3?

To nizsmo:
Ideally I would like to grant access, onsite or remotly without asking users to enter credentials again, based on the username detection I would do...

To v2Media:
I don't know, I will check with my admin and get back to you.

As a quick solution, if using IIS you can eliminate anonymous access to the website and use integrated windows authentication. This is simply done by opening IIS Admin, right clicking the default web site for properties and selecting the directory security tab.

Under directory security there's anonymous access, disable it. Check the option for "Integrated Windows Authentication".

I'm not too sure if this is what you are looking for, but it is a very simple PHP authentication script, and you have to specify the username and password at the top.

You can easily configure it for multiple users and passwords by using a password and username array.

As i said, not sure if this is what you are looking for but hope it helps.
<?php
// specify password & username
$username = "test";
$password = "testing";
 
if (!isset($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'])) 
{
    header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My Realm"');
    header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
    exit;
}
 
if($_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_USER'] != $username || $_SERVER['PHP_AUTH_PW'] != $password)
{
	header('WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="My Realm"');
	header('HTTP/1.0 401 Unauthorized');
	exit;
}
 
// Your PHP CONTENTS HERE IF THEY ENTER CORRECT PASSWORD & USERNAME!
echo "Success!!";
?> 

Open in new window

Ok could not really test it as I opted for another solution. Still people that helped deserve points.
