I don't pretend to be a Win NT guru, but I can't think of a way of using
native NT authentication for SAS applications. If I were in your situation,
I would contact my IS group and find out if LDAP was used for directory
services and user authentication for company applications, as is the case
where I work. I would then request the necessary additions to the LDAP
directory and use Base SAS features to authenticate users to my application.

<p>Does anyone know if you can interface with Windows NT to check for a
<br>username and password entered by the user in a SAS application?
<br>like to be able to prompt for a username and password and authenticate
<br>with the operating system's (in this case NT) security.
