I’ve made our Adobe Connect service single sign-on for our employees and nicely work for our guests – all behind Novell iChain accelerator. It was a pain in the neck to make them work together. A lot of weird HTTP header and URI issues. Even though Adobe Connect offers a nice API to manage meetings, log in users and guests, it’s really proxy-unfriendly.

#ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ “/Users/peterk/slingshot.mytbwa.com/trunk/cgi-bin”
# Following works nicely

php_flag display_errors on
# Following disables warning when accessing uninitialized array entries like $_SESSION[‘user_id’]
# 4097 = E_ERROR + E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR
php_value error_reporting 4097
