No. LDAP uses its own authentication to control access. The access is
based upon Access Control Lists.

For the simplest possible setup, keep the rootpw in slapd.conf the
default "secret".

Then bind to the directory as the manager (whatever you made the rootdn

Then try to modify an entry from ud:

* cb o=Williams Communications, c=US

* bind Manager
  Authenticating to the directory as "Manager"...
  Enter your LDAP password: *********
  Authentication successful.

* vedit David


It should work for you.

As far as making the driectory editable by users try this: (Warning I
don't really know how (in)secure this is in your slapd.conf:

defaultaccess read
access to * by self write
            by dn="cn=Manager, ou=SAM, o=Concentric Network, c=US" write

These should be the last line in your slapd.conf (or before a second
database definition...

If you need more help with ACL's check the documentation (SLAPD/SLURPD
Admin guid) there are some examples in there.

Hope that helps...
