You can download them via setup.exe from the cygwin site.
There are 3 packages (the servers are in openldap)
Sorry, I am not exactly familiar with Cygwin or even LDAP for that matter.
Please excuse me if I have too many questions. I tried the following and am
I tried getting OpenLDAP via Cygwin as you suggested and landed up a lib
directory that has
liblday_r.dll.a and so on.
There were no .dll files, instead I got a bunch of .dll.a and .a files. I
haven't encountered any WIN library files with a .dll.a extension and they
do not open up using Visual Studio either. Is there something I am missing
out here. Should I simply use the \lib and the \usr\include directories as
my client library?
The other option I tried is downloading a tar file of 2.1.25 version (which
supports Windows) from the archives. It had the Windows workspace files in
the build directory. I opened up the main.dsw file and tried to do a build.
It said that the SASL header was missing. I tried installing Cyrus SASL to
continue. I see that I need to install Sleepycat software to make
Cyrus SASL. I am sort of confused here. I need only the client library for
Windows. Why would I need to have Sleepycat installed and is there a way to
make SASL without Sleepycat?
Anyway I went on to make SASL without installing Sleepycat and landed up
with the following error:
> NMake -f NTMakefile (I get the following error)
NTMakefile(221) : fatal error U1088: invalid separator '::' on inference rule.
Can someone please give me some more details on how to get only the
OpenLDAP client library for Windows. I need to do LDAP authentication in my
client either over SSL or using Kerebros, whichever is easier.
Any help is appreciated.
