RE: user management with ldap - tools

Yes, I saw that one.  I think its great but I have poor windows-dependant
user admins. :)
So, I have taken a liking to webmin with the ldap-users module.  The only
problem I see with that
idea is that it only does users, not groups.  Would be very easy to
implement however.  Another problem
I found when searching for this was that a lot of web tools did not do md5
or crypt passwds.  ldap-users
does however.  It seems like a lot of work is being done, just some holes
need to be filled as far as features
and functionality.

There is a GTK tool named Directory administrator
(http://www.usm.edu.ec/~amadorm/directoryadmin/) written by Manuel Amador
(amador@alomega.com). It does only simple authentication (no SASL), but
otherwise it has everything to maintain users.
