I've been looking to setup an OpenID server for a special project, but haven't found any workable OpenID server software packages. Originally was looking for a *nix solution, and found several, but they all had some kind of issue.

So far I've tried JOIDS, community-id, and a couple others I unfortunately can't remember the names of.

I've also come to the conclusion that even if I had managed to get one of those going that the management/upgrade cycles would have placed undue burden on the company (only a couple part time sysadmins with *nix knowledge, the day to day people are primarily Windows). So, I'm hoping that there's a Windows one out that will be functional that someone knows about and will be easy for a minimal support environment...

DO you want this OpenID server to authenticate users against Active Directory? – rmalayter Apr 13 '12 at 21:43

@MDMarra isn't he just looking for a tool? We don't suggest those? – uSlackr Apr 13 '12 at 22:19
@uSlackr No, that's a product recommendation. It's explicitly off-topic. – MDMarra Apr 13 '12 at 22:21
How is it different than this question? (trying to understand the subtlety ) – uSlackr Apr 13 '12 at 22:23

openid usually runs at the web application level so is os-independent. since most web apps such as php, python, ruby all run on windows, you should be run one, though i have not done so.
