Authentication problem

Hello, "URGENT"

I'm trying to use ldap for my user authentication on my Red Hat 9 box.

According to manuals, I've set things up neatly and I can search any info i want out of the ldap database (using #ldapsearch or gui or from any interface!).

But, when user is authenticated, it is not successful and the error is

Jun 12 19:53:15 linpc login: LOGIN ON pts/0 BY william FROM
Jun 12 19:57:18 linpc xinetd[1654]: START: telnet pid=9915 from=
Jun 12 19:57:32 linpc login: pam_ldap: ldap_simple_bind Can't contact LDAP server

Why is that impossible when direct query looks fine?

For your better analysis,

/etc/pam.d/system-auth is as below:

auth        required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_env.so
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so likeauth nullok
auth        sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so use_first_pass
auth        required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_deny.so

account     sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so
account     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so

#account [default=bad success=ok user_unknown=ignore service_err=ignore syst
em_err=ignore] /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so

password    required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_cracklib.so retry=3 type=

password    sufficient    /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so use_authtok
password    required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_deny.so

session     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_limits.so
session     required      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_unix.so
session     optional      /lib/security/$ISA/pam_ldap.so
"/etc/pam.d/system-auth" 22L, 1070C                           9,1           All

nsswitch.conf is as below:

passwd:     files ldap
shadow:     files ldap
group:      files ldap

I found the similar problem in this mailing list n 2001 with Red Hat 6.2 but he just removed spaces after values in ldap.conf and he got it working.

ldap.conf bears standard recommended settings and therefore, i don't put it here..

Any pointer? Folks?
