I'm working with portal 2.4.1 on AS 4.0.5GA. I recently got authentication working with LDAP and the jboss console login. Now I would like to allow our users to login from a portlet, but I'm not having any luck. We would like to have users login and see slightly different content as a result - we aren't trying to lock down an area on the server (e.g. everything in the /auth/ domain)
Following instructions here http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=PortletLogin haven't lead to any positive results yet. Strictly following the example, I have an error to the effect that j_security_check isn't part of the servlet I'm using to redirect with. Hardcoding the entire URL causes the servlet to time out.
