Details of your authn server would be helpful. Do you have access to the
admins of that server? Are they cooperative?
I tried to set this up using SASL to communicate with the campus Active
Directory. Reliability is a bit suspect, it will typically take 3-4
attempts to get a successful authentication. Also, the setup requires an
account on AD that is capable of making queries. The particulars of our
installation force me to use my own - not ideal.
Anyway, your situation may vary, so send us some details on what you are
trying to talk to for autn.

The difficulty we are having now is setting up the pass-through
authentication for the passwords. Any pointers in how to proceed with
this would be greatly appreciated.
