Use Windows Domain authentication to log into a Workgroup computer

I have a computer that is not part of the Windows Domain (Active Directory) but is just a stand alone computer in its on workgroup. Is it possible to use a domain account to authenticate on this server?

Unfortunately not - You would need to ad the computer to the domain first then you would be able to log on.

No, until you don't join it into domain, you cannot log on there on any domain account. Workgroup doesn't know anything about those users :)

There was a 3rd party app that wanted to use our Windows domain accounts to authenicate against their web application but the server was not part of the domain. After further research into the application, it would more require the web application to do an LDAP against our AD to make it work properly.
