Re: Trying to compile OpenLDAP with supportedSASLMechanisms:EXTERNAL

I have started ldap with
-h ldapi://%2fvar%2frun%2fopenldap%2fldapi
And that is how the client (in this case Heimdal)
should be connecting. I've followed the directions at the Padl.com
web site. I'll try searching over at their list for a while. I thought I should have
seen the mechanism before going forward.

Almost true.

SASL bind with mech EXTERNAL can also be used when connecting through a Unix domain socket using an URI starting with ldapi://. EXTERNAL is then also listed in supportedSASLMechanisms.

Ciao, Michael.
