Active Directory Password Authentication

Is it possible to authenticate using Active Directory Password Authentication in Toad for SQL Server 6.8? In Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio there’s an option for this, but in Toad for SQL Server there’s only “Windows Authentication” and “SQL Server Authentication”. My Login name is my email address, e.g., When I login with SQL Server Authentication in Toad, it fails with the error message “Cannot open server “” requested by the login. The login failed.”

Thanks in advance

Thank you

there are four connection methods available in Toad for SQL Server 7.2:
