Re: OpenLDAP as Proxy

Hello, I would like to furnish gladly OpenLDAP as Proxy. The Proxy is to announce itself with user and passport at a Windows-2003 server. Unfortunately I do not find useful documentation in the Doku and otherwise in the Web. Possibly can someone help me here?

The only "stock" way of doing that is to use back-ldap as in OpenLDAP 2.3 (which is currently in beta) and exploit the identity assertion feature described in <http://www.openldap.org/faq/data/cache/532.html>. Among the possible configurations, you can implement a proxy that in reaction to anonymous operations binds to a remote server with an administrative identity and does not perform any proxyAuthz; of course, the administrative identity should be pretty much unprivileged... YMMV

Other solutions may require (extensive) coding.
