There are several sites I've found on the web detailing how to setup
IIS with Rails. Unfortunately they all seem to be woefully out of
date. I believe they may all even be pre Rails 1.0.
Can single sign on via Active Directory Services be accomplished
through mod_NTLM for Apache, so users won't have ot log into the
intranet site after already having logged into their machine? If it
is possible then I may not need to use IIS, as I know mod_NTLM makes
the AUTH_USER available as a server environment variable similar to
the way in which IIS does.
Does anyone know of a good recent writeup of how to setup Rails to be
served purely by IIS, or a maybe book explaining it?
When Rails is served by IIS then it automatically has SSO, and access
to request.env['AUTH_USER']. I have been able to setup IIS to act as
a proxy to a Mongrel-Rails setup. This works for SSO, but I can't
access the AUTH_USER so it is not an acceptable solution.
Has anyone done this themselves, and can they post a how to on the
Rails wiki? The current one references Rails 0.13, and ActionPack
1.7.0. I am currnetly running versions are 1.1.6 and 1.12.5,
Likewise, when I get this working I will update the wiki myself.
