I have a situation where i have to perform an LDAP bind to a given
LDAP server with only being provided a service ticket to that
particular LDAP server and nothing else, i have already explored the
possibility of using SASL authentication method with GSSAPI as the
mechanism, however i guess the GSSAPI mechanism takes user credentials
as input and moves through the Kerberos protocol to finally provide
the LDAP server with the service ticket.

Wrong. The GSSAPI mechanism does exactly what you're looking for. -- -- Howard Chu Chief Architect, Symas Corp. http://www.symas.com Director, Highland Sun http://highlandsun.com/hyc/ Chief Architect, OpenLDAP http://www.openldap.org/project/
