DSM plug-in for authorization

Postby tom_with_deadline » 2008-09-10 01:36

Hi, I'm looking at using UltraVNC to allow our users to remote connect to our server.

My question is regarding whether the DSM plug-in system can be used to do arbtrary authorization of user accounts. Clearly uvnc has several options already regarding authentication, but I can't find any method for managing authorization (ie "is this user allowed to connect to this server at this time?")

The UltraVNC features page for DSM says the plug-in can do "additional rights checking, communication timing" at the whim of the developer. But looking at the code and interface, all the plug-in is given is a user password or key. There also seems to be no appropriate place to do "rights checking".

So does anyone have suggestions about how the DSM plug-in could be used in this way, or know of another way of doing this?

of the several methods of auth you can use MSLOGON II that will be able to do stuff like the things that you have in mind ....

rights checking like PAM in linux can be done in the windows world using active directory - you can use the uses like acl and can limit them by ip address, time and a lot of other constraints
