Hi Michael,

Likely I've explained very bad my issue.

The developer team has implemented a web application that needs SSO and
they've taken advantage of JCIFS SSO Filter to integrate with Active
Directory so users aren't asked for credentials when they go to the
application URL.
As you say, JCIFS performs authentication only with the target file server,
but before that I think users need to authenticate against a domain
controller for SSO purpose. Please, correct me if I’m wrong.
We also have a web.xml file and here you’re the code for the filter:



As you can see, we don’t use WINS resolution because we only have DNS
resolution in our domain. My intention is to set specific domain controllers
for the NTLM authentication, I don’t want users authenticate against other
domain controllers that are far from their location to avoid excesive
network traffic.

Thank you very much.
