Regarding the IFP server and integration with eDirectory, the user will not be prompted for authentication when attempting to access the internet. SmartFilter will query eDirectory every so often to get a list of logged on users, in this list it will contain a 'networkAddress'. So when SmartFilter recieves a request it will take the client IP, compare it to the list recieved from eDirectory, match it against the 'networkAddress' attribute and find the corresponding username to determine which user is logged on to that IP.
Let me know if that makes sense or answers your question.
p.s. This would be the correct group for SmartFilter questions.
Many thanks Jon. I assume that the process described below will rrequire the authentication server plugin as well? Will this capture the username for the purposes of logging/reporting too ?

That is correct on both points, you will need the auth server to accomplish this, and once everything is setup, you will see the usernames in the plugin logs.
Thanks Jon - Additionally, the client has a number of locations where Internet Access will be via a single IP address. In these locations, an LDAP lookup to e-Directory is used for authentication and because access is NAT'ed all access appears to be from a single IP - Will individual usernames still be captured even if they are all attached to the same IP?
