Not certain what you mean by "authenticate" since you mention C++.  Is 
this for Windows logon or some application?  For logon you cannot 
authenticate directly against an LDAP server,  but Samba 2.2.3 can go 
between a WinY2k client as an NT4 domain server and an LDAP directory.  
That works great.
