CommuniGate Pro External Authentication

The CommuniGate Pro External Authentication feature allows a site administrator to create a standalone program or script for user authentication. The CommuniGate Pro Server automatically starts the specified External Authentication program and passes it user names and passwords received from client applications. The program checks these credentials and responds with positive or negative authentication results.

A wide variety of existing authentication mechanisms can be integrated with a CommuniGate Pro system using External Authentication programs. The table below lists sample programs (scripts) that can be downloaded and used with your CommuniGate Pro Server.
