First of all, what's missing here is the "mode" parameter; what do you want the proxy to do? bind as "service/mailrouter@stanford.edu", SASL authorize as "dn:cn=mailrouter,cn=service,cn=applications,dc=stanford,dc=edu" and then? proxy authorize as the incoming request? just keep the "cn=mailrouter,cn=service,cn=applications,dc=stanford,dc=edu" identity?

What I want for it to do is bind using the Krb5 ticket cache specified in slapd's environment, and use whatever identity gets *automatically* negotiated on the remote servers side. All this authcID and authZID stuff is really unnecessary, since the remote server handles it anyway.

What "service/mailrouter@stanford.edu" gets mapped to on the remote server IS "cn=mailrouter,cn=service,cn=applications,dc=stanford,dc=edu" by the authz-regexp rule on the remote server.
