LDAP authentication

Post by connerms »

I have configured LDAP authentication (to an Active Directory server) for WebMO according to the installation instructions. Authentication is failing, but I don't know how to troubleshoot. Are there logs that would show where and how the process is failing? Is there an option in WebMO for providing the bind username and password for the ldap query?

Note that Active Directory (vs. LDAP) is officially supported in WebMO 20. Note that it should be possible to get this working in earlier versions, but it requires some code changes to do. If you are up to the challenge, you can check out the Authen::Simple::ActiveDirectory Perl module, which is what would be required.

Thank you! I was able to modify the password_external.cgi file to use ActiveDirectory per your suggestion and authentication now succeeds.
