Re: Question on bind using Kerberos Service Ticket.
Thanks for the reply Howard, if i can further clarify what you mean is that given the ldap_sasl_bind fucntion prototype below :
LDAP_CONST char *dn,
LDAP_CONST char *mechanism,
struct berval *cred,
int *msgidp )
i first call the Kerberos authentication functions to get the service ticket to the ldap server. Next i can simply use the above fuction specifying mechanism as "GSSAPI" and pointing cred to the Kerberos service ticket i just got ?
If this is right the ldap server will just verify the service ticket and send back the response for the fucntion to return success.
Is there anything else i need to take care of ?

Wrong. The GSSAPI mechanism does exactly what you're looking for.
