Subject Explicit Login with Windows Domain username
Author Nikolaus Kern



I am using trusted authentication with FB 2.5.x and it works very fine. Beside the desktop client I am using a windows service to connect to the database. In this scenario the username and password are provided by the login process of the mobile app that works with this windows service.


When I try to login with Firebird User that uses trusted autothenication the login fails. I see the same problem when I try to login on ISQL with such a useraccount:

Isql localhost:beta -u BAURADAR\NIKOLAUS -p whatever fails.


How do I format the username that it will work? Do I need to escape the \ ? If yes, how?
