No. Openldap doesn't "work" with passwords, if simply stores them, using
methods described in rfcs (consult the docs in the latest tarball
distribution doc/rfc directory). In this case, I don't suppose there is
much fifference between 2.0.x and 2.1.x.

Yes. This is distro-dependent.

Possibly. This is distro-dependent.

Oh, absolutely. That's what ACLs are for ;)

Correct, it's distro-dependent.

Distro-dependent (there didn't ought to be).

Probably. You should have stuck around here.
The difficulties that *you* find with *your* particular distro and
*your* ACLs (you refuse to disclose what these are) I do not find with
RedHat Enterprise Server 3 nor RedHat 7.2. Everything that you say
doesn't work for you, does in fact work for me. Of course, I can eff up
everything by lousing up my ACLs - and have done, in the past.

Then your outstretched right hand should preferably be moved to a
different location ;)
