7.6 Enabling Passive Mode Login

When configured for passive mode login, the Novell Client’s NWGina defers to the Microsoft Graphical Identification and Authentication Dynamic Link Library (msgina.dll) for the initial workstation login. After authentication to the workstation, NWGina attempts to authenticate to the Novell environment. The username and password used for workstation authentication are also used for the Novell authentication.

To successfully authentication to the Novell environment, the username must exist in eDirectory, and the default location profile must be properly configured with the Tree and Context information.

To enable passive mode login, set the following registry keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\NWGINA] “PassiveMode”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Novell\Login] “PassiveModeNDSLogin”=dword:00000001 “PassiveModeNDSLoginSilent”=dword:00000000 or 00000001 “PassiveModeNDSLoginRequired”=dword:00000000 or 00000001
