Newbie Question: Possible To Do?

2 posts in this topic

Working in MS Access VBA on a Novell network. Want to authenticate users (security concerns) against their Novell login before allowing them to use the MS Access app.

Found an API that can match the user's Login ID. Great! But that isn't secure. I need to do the same - MATCH, not view - the Novell Password. Cannot find API to do this. One of my web searches (5starsupport.com) suggested AutoIt as a possible solution. Can it be done? Can you point the way. TIA!!

I don't know of any, but I normally use a file check on a known server. Thus if the person has access to say z:\home\myfile.txt then he is a user, and if he has access to y:\home\admin\secret, then he is a admin.

Good luck in your search, wish I could be of more help.

ps, I would actually do a file read, because things like filemon will show a user what file it is looking for I believe. :D
