Default non-domain computers authentication

Hi everyone!

I can't solve one problem and I will be grateful, if you could help me.

I have domain infrastructure an one hundered non-domain computers. Also there is a kerberos/NTLM authentication on MWG.

And I need to do that if user uses non-domain computer he didn't get authentication prompt and authenticate authomaticly as any "default" user.

My authenticatiom policies is in attachement.

Thank you.

we use subnets or list of trusted IPs to identify systems without authentication. I guess authentication can not be done via NTLM/Kerberos for such non-domain PCs and proxy will use Basic authentication method so browser will display login dialog.

So, you can use "Client.IP is in range" or "Client.IP is in list" rule with stop ruleset action to bypass authentication.

Re: Default non-domain computers authentication

How are you deployed?

You would need to use Try-Auth which is available in the ruleset library. This would only work for windows machines hitting the mwg over direct proxy. Mac or other devices would prompt because that's what they do
