How to login as internal user with SSO working?

Hi guys,

First of all I'm not that active at the forums, because my company has an Enterprise partnership and I normally use the Alfresco Support.
I've seen the topics created here and a lot are very useful, so I'll try to be more active and post my questions on both sides.

My situation:
I've got Alfresco 3.2 Enterprise installed.
I need to have subsystems configured like this:
- Alfresco users (external) need to login in Share
- AD/LDAP users need to be synced in Alfresco, because users need to invite users from the company. So passthru just won't be enough.
- SSO needs to work for AD/LDAP users (which are synced in Share).

My subsystems chain is:
- alfrescoNtlm, passthru, ldap
- alfrecoNtlm: sso.enabled=false
- ldap: ldap.authentication.active=false
- passthru: sso.enabled=true

I've done this, because when enabling sso in AlfrescoNtlm, I can't login with the AD/LDAP users EVEN when they are created/synced in Alfresco

By choosing this way SSO works for AD/LDAP users even in Share!
The problem is that now alfresco/external users can't login in Share. In Explorer they can use: alfresco/faces/jsp/login.jsp and they get logged in –> so no problem.
In Share I haven't found a way to use a login. I've tried share/login.jsp –> you'll get a simple (ugly) login and when I try to login –> SSO from passthru get's invoked.
This is done because of the NTLMAuthenticationFilter runs on all pages.

So I'm a bit stuck.

Thanks!
