This page gives information on configuring the SharePoint Connector's NTLM SOAP proxy.

Overview

The SharePoint Connector NTLM proxy is a .NET proxy that makes it possible for Confluence to communicate with SharePoint using the full range of Integrated Windows Authentication methods, including:

  • NTLM
  • NTLMv2
  • Kerberos

For details of the full authentication configuration, see the guide to accessing SharePoint using Integrated Windows Authentication with SharePoint 2007SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013

The proxy only works when Confluence is run on a Windows server. If the proxy causes problems, you can disable it. You can also change the port on which the proxy listens for requests.

Defaults:

  • The proxy is enabled by default when Confluence is running on a Windows server.
  • The proxy listens on port 56000 by default.

Effects of Disabling the Proxy

If you disable the proxy, then Confluence will only be able to communicate with SharePoint using NTLM. It will not be able to use NTLMv2 or Kerberos.

Configuring the Proxy

 

  1. Access the Proxy Configuration page directly by typing the following URL into your browser (where "confluence" is the name and context path of your Confluence server): http://confluence/admin/sharepoint-admin/proxy-admin.action
  2. The 'SharePoint Connector NTLM Proxy' screen appears, as shown below. Enable, disable or configure the proxy as required.
