How to using OS Authentication to connect to Oracle via TOAD

I have set you my test oracle 11g database to allow windows authentication. I can connect to my database using SQLPLUS. I tried figuring out how to connect using windows authentication within TOAD but could not get it to work. Is there a forums or a help article that i can use to get connected…

If you can connect that way in SQLPlus then there is no more set up to do. Just leave username and password blank, or use EXTERNAL for username and leave password blank. Make sure you are using the same Oracle client in Toad as you are in SQLPlus.

thanks that did it. had to use EXTERNAL is the username field…
