Hi Ron,


Yes, if we can use Moodle as an authentication system then it makes a lot of
sense to ACL providers who can then take a wireless laptop into a civic hall
with Moodle on a stick and allow people to get onto both Moodle and Xerte
using adhoc wireless connections. The same obviously goes for prisons. 


Kindest Regards,

Do you have a moodle installation? Even if you don't as long as you could
install a copy this could be an easy solution for people to enable
alternative toolkits authentication which would include email registration as
well as account creation as that's all built in to moodle. You wouldn't even
need to use moodle as it could just be used as the authentication method. If
this were documented would it be of interest?

Hello All,


Are there any alternatives to LDAP authentication?

Is it possible to have for example email registration, or just create a
database of user accounts?

If this feature does not yet exsit, where which files would I need to edit to
create it?

For example, if I wanted to write a new auth method, where would I change the
function / method call?


Thanks Jeremy
