OK, if I am way off base here, could someone please explain?  I have been
working with the secur32.dll, and in trying to figure out which return
result from AcceptSecurityContext returns -90301, I found my answer in the
Indy help documentation, which led me
to believe that the IdAuthenticationSSPI unit could be somehow used to
interface to the secur32.dll.  If I am wrong, could someone please tell me
before I spend way too much time barking up a wrong tree.  I'm hoping that
this exists within the Indy framework, because I have heard so much good
coming out of Indy.

Thank you so very much,

Daniel Bragg
