The Fabasoft Folio Web Management supports authentication based on Kerberos.
The following chapters describe the configuration of Mozilla Firefox.
No proxy server may be used. On the “Edit” menu, click “Properties”. On the “General” tab, click “Connection Settings” and select the Direct connection to the Internet box.
Enable the negotiate authentication for the Linux server running the Fabasoft Folio Management Service. Type the “about:config” command in the address bar of the web browser. Modify the parameters network.negotiate-auth.delegation-uris and network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris and add the Linux server.
It is mandatory that a fully qualified domain name is provided to connect to the service. By default, the Linux Fabasoft Folio Management Service listens on port 17088.
The user, who should administer the Fabasoft Folio Domain via the Fabasoft Folio Web Management, must have a valid Kerberos ticket.
If the Fabasoft Folio Web Management runs on a Microsoft Windows system, log in as a Microsoft Windows domain user, who has administrative rights on the Fabasoft Folio Domain. The Kerberos ticket is provided automatically.
If the Fabasoft Folio Web Management runs on a Linux system, the Kerberos ticket is also provided automatically if a LDAP and KDC environment is available. To get a ticket for a specific user (e.g. Microsoft Windows domain user) manually execute the kinit <user> command. To verify the ticket use the klist command.
