Forum .LRN Q&A: External authentication with dotLRN (LDAP)

Posted by Trenton Cameron on
I am experianceing a similar problem trying to authenticate against active directory. When I run the search
ldapsearch -h -D "CN=youruseraccount,CN=Users,DC=yourdomain,DC=com" -x -W -b "CN=Users,DC=yourdomain,DC=com" -t cn=youruseraccount

everything works fine. In fact when I run ethereal and try to authenticate from openacs it is giving a reply with the user information. Active directory does not return the password hash with this querry (As far as I know it will not return the password or hash) Is this what is causing my problems? If so is there another way around it? If not what am I missing. Thanks again.
