    I don't want any of these integration stuff mentioned in this thread. I'm completely fine with what they have in VB4.

    vB Nexus is good, and sort of achieves SSO (in a way) but user must have accounts elsewhere.

    I've heard of VBnexus that lets you login with Facebook I think, but I dunno if it works.

    I agree completely. Though, people here have been asking for it for years. As was stated earlier in the thread though, IP.Converge is the only comparison software that offers this feature. And as for Vbulletin, well, single sign on between forums is not something that has been planned.

    Here's an LDAP plugin I've been meaning to checkout: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=148573

    If you check it out and it works for you with LDAP, please post your results in this thread as I'm really curious but don't have the time right now.

    Here's another LDAP authentication from vbulletin.org: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=145188

    Are there any other ways to achieve this without a third party plugin? I guess I'd have to hard code it myself.

    So I'm hardly technical. But I do know I want to take my ldap directory and sync it with my forum members.

    If I understand this discussion correctly, the "Single Member Sign-on" does not provide a way for me to do what I want, but instead refers to a single sign on for the CMS and for the forums. Am I right?

    If you were to recommend a third-party plugin, what would you recommend?

    I can hope that this is for multi forum/domain logins.

    I would be tickled purple if this were the case.

    (I know, it really cant be expected,...but I can hope anyways)
    Small correction, PT has been canned.

    So, is vBulletin Solutions thinking about a future like the ip single sign option for the vBulletin or not?

    Thanks, Shelby. I've been looking at IPB today and really like the SSO option. Hard to give up Vbulletin as it's what I know and love and think I'd rather get LDAP working (just gotta compile and configure it). And then figure out how to manage and modify it. Sigh.

    Yeah, Vbulletin doesn't have true single sign on between product installs. If this feature is a "must have" feature. I suggest looking at IP.Converge.

    Well, I was wondering this myself. If you're correct then I'm still bummed VBulletin doesn't have SSO for multiple forums.

    While looking for info on LDAP, I just found OpenID today and will take another look at it, but I'm leaning towards Fedora LDAP (or 389 Directory Server): http://directory.fedoraproject.org/

    My understanding is LDAP is tuned more for reads than writes so it might work better than a relational database like mysql anyway... I just need time to research the issues.
