I am just facing a similar problem: We have an "old" LDAP-Server
running (not capable of any other than basic authentication). So I'm
reading ldap.conf to see how to stop any client from sending
authentification requests using SASL.
So, there's SASL_SECPROPS .....
But what do have to fill in to keep it authenticating the basic way?
Thanks in advance
