just wondering how i would go about modding the auth system to work the way i want it

I want to use fudforum to act as a web interface for a private nntp server which is currently accessed from a shell client on the same unix box. so i need a way of modding the auth system in fudforum so that the users allowed to log onto the unix box can log into fudforum and use it as a web front end for the nntp server. pubcookie is set up to authenticate with ldap which means users can log into the server and the environment varible REMOTE_USER is given the value of the username

Anyone have any idea's how'd i go about modding the auth system to allow for this kind of system??

Simplest mechanism would be to deny anonymous users access to the forum. And then have a periodic cronjob add new ldap add (and remove no longer used ones) users to the forum. That way you can avoid having to modify any of the forum's source code.
