I am a newbie to cold fusion. I have classic asp and asp.net background. I am
trying to get some old coldfusion code running on a windows 2008 server. I
installed IIS 7 and railo and got it serving cfm pages. But I want to be able to
tell who is logged into my network and then do things based on who that is. I
tried turning off anonymous access and turning on widows authentication in IIS.
I also changed the tomcat server.xml AJP connector to
<Connector port="8009" tomcatAuthentication="false" protocol="AJP/1.3"
when I try a test cfm page it prompts me to login (which I really don't want) it
succeds to authenticate if I enter a valid network user and password. But
<cfdump var="#cgi#"> still shows remote_user and auth_user both empty.
What I want to to not bother the user but just tell who it is that is
authenticated in our network domain. Is that possible? It seemed that this old
cold fusion 5 system we had running did it.
