I am having problem with user authentication. I have a windows 2000 domain controller, a windows 2000 prof on which I have installed kerio firewall and a client pc. I have kept almost all the setting as default except in user , I added the AD users and used few HTTP rules. From Client PC when a user logs in and try to access any site, it goes to the firewall login page. Once a user is authenticated, no matter how many times i log off and again login... it never goes to the firewall authentication page..and the user is identified as the first user only who was authenticated initially. so all the restricted users can also access the web from that PC. Is there any specific trafic rule or http rule I have to apply so that only certain Active directory users can access the web.
PLease help....

I also have the same problem. There are 6 users on a client PC in my local network whose sessions must be logged in WinRoute for proper traffic control. For this goal I use HTTP policy to redirect each user to the login page. But nothing works as I want it to work. The first user who logged on that PC is redirected to Kerio's authentication page when he tries to go to any site. That's right. But when he logs off and another user logs in all traffic for this new user is counted as traffic for the user who logged first because the new one isn't redirected to the authentication page due to unknown reasons.
Maybe somebody knows how to send message to WinRoute Firewall on server to log off any user at any time( or at time when he/she logs off OS ) or there exists another solution?

A workaround may be to drop the inactivity logout time to say 30 mins or summin.

I know this is not ideal but alot of things are not in KWF!?

USERS AND GROUPS/Users/Authentication Options

Automatically logout user when inactive - 30

Hope this helps a bit

Thanks Dave. By reducing the inactivity logout time the problem is bit controlled but still I believe there should be some other way to handle the user authentication problem.. And is there any way to bypass the authentication page for the windows authenticated users....I have tried the user automatic logon but still its asking for the authentication whenever a user is trying to access the internet.

Go to the tab Users / Active Directory/NT domain and check the 'Enable NT domain authentication'. Fill in the domain name (eg active directory name is companyabc.com the domain name is companyabc).

Now move to the tab Users / Authentication options and check the 'Enable user authentication automatically performed by Web browsers'.

Apply the changes and it should work. It did not work for me first because I only entered the AD part and not the domain part. Now it works fine, no login asked. Only the first page takes a bit longer to load.
