Getting null username when using sharepoint with passthru

Question asked by matteo on Nov 24, 2009
Hi, I have a problem: I installed the vti module for the sharepoint support; the service on port 7070 starts but when I try to create a new shared workspace from within office 2003, the system keeps asking for the username/password and I can see the following in the catalina.out log:


DEBUG [vti.web.VtiFilter] Session user is null. Authenticate user.
   [ HERE I TYPE MY USERNAME AND PASSWORD AND CLICK "OK" ]
DEBUG [alfresco.passthru.auth] Authenticate org.alfresco.repo.security.authentication.ntlm.NTLMPassthruToken@e6092a: Username: null; Password: [PROTECTED]; Authenticated: false; Details: null; Not granted any authorities via token

as you can see it shows Username: null; but I'm specifying my domain user and my password; it asks for the credentials many times and then fails, saying that there is a problem connecting to the server.

Everything is setup correctly and when booting there are no errors; passthru authentication works well with alfresco explorer, share, CIFS, FTP etc……. but not when calling the vti server from within office (trying to use the sharepoint features).

Where's the problem? I'm using version 3.2r.

Please, someone help me, thanks.
