I'm in the process of writing a freeware tool for doing a "Reverse Login"
for Client32.

This tool is designed primarily for laptops which do not get an IP address
until after authenticating to Windows.

After an IP Address is received, RevLogin32.exe will perform an LDAP lookup
and attempt to use passthrough authentication to login the local Windows
user into
the specified eDirectory tree. This tool will work best when the local user
name both match the eDirectory user name and password.

Simply Click on RevLogin32.exe to see the instructions.
A debug file will be created in the %temp% directory.


Please send comments to craig_d_wilson at yahoo dot com.

I will shortly be publishing this tool to CoolSolutions but I wanted some
feedback from some users first.
