Problem

This solution addresses the same problem highlighted in a recent Cool Solutions article: Solving Re-login Issues with NSL Single Sign-On (http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/tip/11470.html). When logging out of certain web applications, the user is logged back into the application, therefore causing a loop.

Solution

Using this script, NSL will detect the fact that the user has logged in previously and close the web browser. The script shows how to overcome this problem, and it demonstrates the use of pull-down menus. It isn't ideal for every scenario, but it's another option and it worked for us.
