Re: Client reports "Can't Contact LDAP server"

[root@enigma jim-lcl]# rpm -qa | grep openssl
[root@enigma jim-lcl]#
[root@enigma jim-lcl]# rpm -qa | grep libcap
[root@enigma jim-lcl]#

So what it is saying is that I've already got those packages... hmmmm now what I am using is Mandrake... is it possible that
the rpms just can't find the files? This could be solved by putting links in the right places.

FYI, I need a good packet sniffer anyway because I have to be able to prove stuff like encryption to my profs.
A printout from a packet sniffer is the most direct means I can think of.

You know I would like to try and apply this idea to my problems but I keep getting failed dependencies from the rpms.

I know what your thinking and that is that I should try compileing my own BUT... theoretically if I cannot get the
rpms to install it indicates that I am missing something. In this case some kind of crypto library (i.e. libcrypto.so.2

This would be for Openssl.

and also libcap.so.0.6.2).

And this would be libpcap.

Yes, you're right. I've compiled my own libpcap (on Red Hat 7.2 with
gcc3.0.4), Openssl (because of security warnings about older versions -
I'm now using 0.9.6g), Berkeley, Openldap 1.1.4, cyrus SASL etc. etc.
I've deliberately chosen to do this for all "network" stuff, though I
use rpms for *many* other things. Choosing to compile basic network
stuff comes from an earlier existence as SCO sysadmin, when what you got
from SCO was years out of date and was never updated.

Ask rpm what it has for openssl and libpcap ('rpm -qa | grep openssl'
and the same for libpcap. Install them from your install CD if you don't
have them.
