Howto setup SASL for OpenLDAP for Samba?
I'm trying to setup an OpenLDAP 2.0.21 server on MandrakeLinux 8.2. The
LDAP should act as a backend for Samba 2.2.4.
I'm currently still fighting the SASL setup. However, before I go on to
explain my problems, I'm curious if I actually need SASL at all. If I
understood the Samba howtos and docs correctly, the Windows 2000 clients
will transmit the password/username encrypted to the Samba server which
will then do a lookup in the LDAP.
Well, since Samba and OpenLDAP will run on the same machine, I fail to
understand why I should need any encryption from Samba <> OpenLDAP.
Furhter, Samba could do ldaps or TLS. Or am I currently so much
confused and thus mix things up?
If someone could please shed some light, I'd be more than happy!
Thanks a lot,
