I read some exchanges above (not all) and this is what your client wants to achieve: Use the Server's AD in authentication instead of another separate login form for your VFP app.

If so, then the solution is very simple. Just remove your log in form. When they click, send them straight to main menu/form.

You see, another login form aside from what the OS is using is for their additional protection. But if they want it that way (no more login form for your app), then that is their decision and risk.

All you need to do then is share your app's folder in the server for specific users. So if they log in on the OS on your local domain, then those users granted permission can access it. If they log in locally, they can't even connect to that folder. And that sharing is better done manually, not through codes tampering with server.
