Re: LDAP Bind request seen many times in network trace

Hi Kurt,

Thankyou very much.

The code i have written goes this way

1. I have initialized using ldap_initialize(ld, ldap://server1.test.com:389)
2. Then i have ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s() for binding to the ldap server.
3. Then ldap_sasl_rebind() 4. lot of ldap operations like search/add/modify/delete.

Do i need to use ldap_sasl_rebind() if i have more than one ldap operations in my code? Can you please let me know when exactly ldap_sasl_rebind() is used or point me to the source where i can get more information on using ldap_sasl_rebind()?

Thanks and Regards,

1. whether the behaviour observed in the network trace is normal?

It certainly not abnormal. See RFC 2251 discussion about multiple Bind steps.

2. How can i make LDAP Bind to only one server though i have many ldap servers in my environment?

Disable referral and search continuation chasing via ldap_set_option(3). See clients/tools/common.c for an example.
