(Long story short.) I'm moving a complex solution from a local network to a hosted service. The solution uses (and needs to use) external authentication. In order to divorce the solution from the local network completely, we will no longer be using our active directory on the local network. Setting up security groups and users on the hosted server and configuring FM server to authenticate against it was very easy. Only one problem remains, How can users change their passwords? This isn't really a Filemaker question as the question becomes, how can you let a user change their password on windows servers if they do not have desktop access(on the server)? I have done a couple of google searches and found enough to know I could write some sort of custom solution (or likely adapt one that is already out there) but before going down that rabbit hole.... I thought I would ask the helpful people here.
I have an Active Directory for user authentication for our FMP users. I, however, must use unencrypted connection because otherwise it does not work. I have tried and tested the same parameters on other solutions to authenticate against AD, and they work, but with FMS, it works only unencrypted. I read the Manual, it says that I must use a certificate, but my domain is '.local' and I don't understand why it needs a supported certificate for this matter. I did install a certificate for FMP so in order to avoid the annoying web direct security statement. All said, I have a Windows 2008 R2 level domain, with 3 servers to authenticate against. A dedicated FMS windows 2008 r2 server that belongs to the domain. What must I do?
