Authenticate to Active Directory from a local PC account
Posted on 2014-08-29
I would like to have a PC that is logged in as a local (no domain) user and then have a VB program that will authenticate with a given domain username and password (please don't ask why, it's a long story!).
So the computer would be logged in as something like LocalUser1 and then the domain user (let's say bob.smith) would launch a VB program that would authenticate him to AD and map his drives. Mapping drives is not an issue, but I need to make sure authentication is done in a way that my web filter will know that bob.smith is logged in (the filter is tied into AD with LDAP).
First, I'd like to know if this is even possible. If it is, then what type of authentication would I need to establish?
