What does the authentication provide you access to? Generally you'd just add in those details as and when, e.g. in your browser when prompted. There's not really any specific work to do, just put your details in as required. If you're looking at logging into the machine with your AD account then that gets much more complicated, and likely provides no tangible benefits to you at all.

Thank you for your prompt response Chris. Authentication allows me access to internet, personal outlook and other LAN pc's. I tried to use this http://www.beyondtrust.com/Technical...ion/?Pass=True but i do not know how to do it.
I tried but no results.

I would recommend just entering your details each time on demand. Is there something stopping you doing this?

You can't log into a LAN. a LAN is a series of switches and cables and IP devices. you don't "log in" to it. If you do log in, you won't find a magical single sign on scenario happening, that's really pretty hard to get working, i.e. exchange of KRB5 tickets through specific applications, and very few apps actually support it.

You can use a tool as defined in here https://www.linux.com/learn/tutorial...windows-domain but I doubt it'll really give you what you think you'll get.
