Subject Re: Automatic windows authentication using serf/svn 1.8
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2013 12:01:24 GMT
Sorry, I did not mention it specifically:
I can authenticate when I type in my domain user name/password when
prompted. And, they are cached so they must be entered only once (per each
domain password change I assume).

But I would prefer if the authentication ticket is obtained from currently
logged in windows user, not to type user name/password manually. That part
is failing...
