Login to LDAP using current credentials

    Hello,

    Here is my situation. I have developed several apps that require
    authentication to access. For authentication, I have the users enter thier
    user/pass and click login, which is then sent to an LDAP Server (NOVELL) - if
    binding is successful, I use the login object to retrieve various
    fields/attributes of the LDAP directory for that user.

    This works just fine, but what I want to do is transparently log the user in
    - so they do not have to provide thier credentials. All of the users have
    the Novell Client installed and log in in the morning.

    Is there a way to do this like you would if I was getting the windows
    account via DllImport and the user32.dll - or any other way to take the users
    current credentials and bind them to LDAP for authentication purposes, etc.?
    I suppose much of this will depend on if NOVELL's classes will allow a login
    token to be passed as opposed to supplying both the user/pass.

    Any help would be appreciated.
