Re: Login in with LDAP

If you have already created user and password entry
in the LDAP for the user,then you can simply do a
ldap_simple_bind_s(ld,username,userpassword),if this
call returns 0 then the user exists and password is
correct,otherwise authentication fails.One more thing
to do this,the password attribute should be named as
userpassword only,otherwise it will not work.

Suppose if you have not created the users,refer to the
slapd and slurpd Administrators Guide to see how to
transfer the user information to LDAP.
