Hi all,

I am currently doing an application using MS Access 97 as front-end GUI, connecting to a back-end Oracle server. The Oracle server version is 9.x.

Now I wanna use integrated security so that I won't need to enter the username/password every time I start my application. The problem now is that the Oracle server is in a unix server, and I don't know
1) How to configure Oracle so that it accepts integrated security,
2) How to connect to Oracle from the my application.

I have been doing research on this for long but without solutions.
Anyone, any suggestions?

Thank you very much.

Regards,

You can't use Windows security, you'll have to hardcode the user name and password somewhere.

Thanx for your link. But what I need is the configuration of the Oracle database server, not the connection string. :'(

What do you mean by Windows security?
What I wanna know is how to use the integrated security feature of Oracle. And the Oracle is in a unix server, the application is in a windows os.

Any more suggestions?

Are you able to connect to the database from windows PC ?

Re: Help needed! Oracle settings for integrated security 80 80

Thanx for all the help.

I have configured how to do this following the steps:

1. Set OS_AUTHENT_PREFIX:
SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET OS_AUTHENT_PREFIX = "" SCOPE=SPFILE;

2. Set REMOTE_OS_AUTHENT:
SQL> ALTER SYSTEM SET REMOTE_OS_AUTHENT = TRUE SCOPE=SPFILE;

3. For Windows servers, set in the "%ORACLE_HOME%\network\admin\sqlnet.ora" file:
SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS)

4. Restart database.

5. Create the users.
SQL> CREATE USER xx INDENTIFIED EXTERNALLY;
