"Novell Client post-4.91 SP2 NWGINA.DLL"

"15. Added Passive Mode Login functionality."

Passive Mode Login Functionality:

1) Description:

When configured for "Passive Mode" login, Client32's NWGina defers to
MSGina for the initial workstation login. After authentication to the
workstation, NWGina attempts to authenticate to the Novell environment. The
username and pwd used for workstation authentication are used for the
Novell authentication.

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

2) Configuration

To enable passive mode login the following registry keys must be set:


"PassiveModeNDSLoginSilent"=dword:00000000 or 00000001
"PassiveModeNDSLoginRequired"=dword:00000000 or 00000001

Registry Setting Descriptions:

- PassiveMode: (0/1) default is 0
0 = normal mode
1 = passive mode

- PassiveModeNDSLogin: (0/1) default is 0
0 = don't do Novell login
1 = do Novell login

- PassiveModeNDSLoginSilent: (0/1) default is 0
0 = report Novell login errors
1 = don't report Novell login errors

- PassiveModeNDSLoginRequired: (0/1) default is 0
0 = don't require Novell login
1 = require Novell login

2) Notes:

- If the setting "PassiveModeNDSLoginRequired" is True (1), the gina
experience will require a successful Novell authentication in order to

- The "PassiveModeNDSLoginSilent" setting requires functionality which
be released in Client32 4.91 SP3.

- Login scripts are not processed in passive mode. A workaround is to
run them after the gina login. You can do this by placing a run entry
in the registry or you can create a entry in the startup folder.

Run Key Example:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Run]
"nwscript=reg_expand_sz:loginw32.exe %username% /NA /CONT
