Perl-Backend Proxy Problem
i'm trying to establish a kind of proxy with the perl-backend (It is
planned that the proxy will add some extra functionality in the future,
but for now it should simply forward queries). The proxy is supposed to
work like this:
1.) The (perl-backend) proxy gets a LDAP-query (ldapsearch from the
2.) The backend forwards the query to another LDAP-server
3.) The other LDAP-server responds to the backend
4.) The backend forwards the response to ldapsearch
So far steps 1 to 3 are running fine. That means that the perl-backend
knows the resulting data from the other LDAP-server. The problem i have
is that i cannot seem to take the last step, which means that the data
is lost and ldapsearch print just an "empty" LDIF result.
In the Sample.pm and manpage (man 5 slapd-perl) it is written (at
subroutine search) that results are returned in the format (
resultnumber, LDIF-entry, LDIF-entry, ... ). I'm not sure what
LDIF-entry exactly means:
Suppose i search for the cn's of some people and the perl-backend knows
the results. In what format do i have to return this data? I tried the
format to be in LDIF-format, which means
cn: Mister X
This doesn't work (even if i remove the first line "version: 1"). So
what format so i need? A simple string? An array? Hash? Object?
If someone could help me this would be great! If you need further
details of my problem just say so, i will try to explain further.
