Authentication
To enable the NTLM authentication edit the web.xml file in the WEB-INF folder and change the filter mapping section from :-

  <filter-mapping>
     <filter-name>Authentication Filter</filter-name>
     <url-pattern>/faces/*</url-pattern>
  </filter-mapping>

to

  <filter-mapping>
     <filter-name>NTLM Authentication Filter</filter-name>
     <url-pattern>/faces/*</url-pattern>
  </filter-mapping>

The default NTLM filter configuration will try to find the local domain/workgroup name and find the domain controllers or browse master.

The following parameters are available to configure the NTLM filter :-


LocalDomain


Use the local domain/workgroup servers to authenticate users


LocalServer


Use the local server to authenticate users, only useful on Windows as it's likely to be the Alfresco CIFS server when running on Linux. Possible values are true and false.


Domain


Domain/workgroup to use for authentication


Servers


Comma-delimited list of server names or addresses to use for authentication


AllowGuest


If the authentication server has the guest account enabled it may allow any user to authenticate but sets a flag to indicate a guest logon.
