Basic SSO and NTLM help, please... Getting frustrated...

This is really wearing me down…  :shock:

I'm using 3.2 and have read http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_Authentication_Subsystems pretty heavily, and I still can't seem to get this to work correctly.

All I want to do is the following:

1. User visits an Alfresco page and based on the logged in domain user, logs in as that user.
2. If the browser presents no NTLM, it prompts and the user can enter (DOMAIN\user or user@domain).

I need to use passthru because I don't want to worry about password sync-up.

Here are the only file modifications I've made to alfresco-global.properties:

authentication.chain=alfrescoNtlm1:alfrescoNtlm,passthru1:passthru

ntlm.authentication.sso.enabled=true
ntlm.authentication.mapUnknownUserToGuest=false
passthru.authentication.domain=MYDOMAIN
passthru.authentication.servers=MYDOMAIN\\dc.mydomain.local
passthru.authentication.authenticateCIFS=true
passthru.authentication.authenticateFTP=true
passthru.authentication.guestAccess=true
passthru.authentication.defaultAdministratorUserNames=administrator

Right now, it prompts me for credentials, but it wont accept anything I put in other than the local default admin/admin Alfresco user credentials.

Can anyone share some straightforward, non-confusing examples or help me untangle the above configuration?

Thanks!
