RE: basic authentication error against ldap


Thanks for the help, before you emailed me I did some more searching
on the previous emailing lists and ended up finding that "allow bind
v2" myself. Which I duly inserted into slapd.conf and things are now
working. Thanks for the pointer still.

Anyway I was just confused whether I had to not only add that line to
slapd.conf but also rerun the ./configure with whatever option was
needed. Fortunately only the first one was needed.

Also in man slapd.conf

I'm not certain "kbind" is what you want.

I'd go back and read up on referrals a bit.

Probably not.
