Steps to configure Active Directory integration with NTLM

Table: Steps to configure Active Directory integration with NTLM describes the steps to configure Active Directory integration with NTLM. When you configure Active Directory integration with NTLM, Symantec Web Gateway communicates with user browsers to perform the following:

  • To extract an Active Directory name

  • To correlate the user's Active Directory name with the user's IP address

  • To reenforce user authentication to the domain controllers when the user's credentials expire
