Sounds like you are doing it. That's what we do as well, but we have a special logon script written by Pharos to handle that. If it was really easy to setup, I would like to know what you did.
Our process allows the student (unintentionally) to enter their student number on the panel and it does not require the password, because that is the way the proximity reader is doing it.
I don't think I explained myself very well. We can configure the station for Active Directory authentication only. If we change our settings we can setup we can get the proximity reader to work. They aren't working at the same time.
You say that you had Pharos write you a script? How much was that? We would love to have a script like that to test.
We have similar custom scripts to authenticate against our ldap and to allow us to use multiple banks ...... I believe these scripts came with pharos ... we did some custom scripts to deal with b&w pritning versus color printing only charging technology fees .... the cost was about $2500 ... but we did this through our reseller, not directly through Pharos.
Im interested in this as well ..... authenticate at release via card OR username and password .... please keep me posted on your development.
