Re: Need to configure openLDAP client to request authenication in LDAP version 2 format

Either way, it doesn't seem that the library can set the LDAP protocol version
(so, you can't put it in an OpenLDAP configuration file). You will have to
see whether PloneLDAP supports setting the protocol version. It doesn't
appear possible via configuration (from what I have seen), you may have to
hack PloneLDAP up a bit, or get a real LDAP server ....
I think the issue of the original poster is not with PloneLDAP, rather
with his mail server which seems to have a LDAPv2 interface.
FYI: PloneLDAP is implemented in Python and therefore uses python-ldap
as a LDAP API (which is for the protocol part a wrapper around the
OpenLDAP client libs). In opposite to the OpenLDAP client libs
python-ldap sets the default for protocol version to LDAPv3 (since
version 2.0.0pre12 as of 2003-05-27). Although strictly speaking this
was a incompatible API change nobody ever complained since then. ;-)
