FPCNonWindowsUser Object

The FPCNonWindowsUser object represents a single user who is authenticated using an authentication scheme other than that of Active Directory. Each non-Windows user is defined by a user name and a namespace that identifies the applicable authentication scheme. Examples of non-Windows users include RADIUS and SecurID users. You can manage which non-Windows users are included in a user set using the NonWindowsUsers property of an FPCUserSet object. For more information about the different kinds of users in Forefront TMG and about user sets, see Defining Groups of Users.

Non-Windows users can also be domain users that a Forefront TMG computer belonging to a workgroup can authenticate by communicating with a domain controller using the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP). These users are known as LDAP users. The definition of each LDAP user also includes the user's realm and display name.

This object is created as an element of an FPCNonWindowsUsers collection.
