[Mono-list] Connecting to a database (VB)

My explaination is how to use Mono's SqlClient with Integrated Security currently. If you can inspect the packets on your machine, you might be able to discover how to get it to work locally.
I have verified a long time ago that Mono's SqlClient can connect to SQL Server using Integrated Security. You have to specify the windows domain userid and password because there is no way that I know of to get this info from the Windows operationg system.
To understand this more, read about Domain Logins in FreeTDS.
To support NTLM locally, you would need to modify Mono.Data.Tds Tds.cs
If client receives type 2 message from the server with the Negotiate Local Call (0x00004000) flag, then you will need to do things differently to support local authentication.
