NTLM and MoPho
MoPho uses a Microsoft security protocol called NTLMv2 in order to login to your computer with a username and password. By default NTLM is enabled in Windows. If this setting is disabled on your computer/server than MoPho will not be able to login.
Does MoPho support other authentication protocols like Kerberos?
No. In MoPho version 1.0 NTLMv2 authentication is required to login with a username/password.
