RE: Debugging a user authentication



I’m not sure if my questions here are getting through to the group (I don’t see a copy to myself)


I’ve diagnosed this issue. The user has a “£”  (UK Pound) in his password. Remove it and everything authenticates OK.  Are there settings in Apache/LDAP for controlling what characters can be used as passwords?

Subject: Debugging a user authentication


Hi All,


Using Apache 2.2, how do I debug the LDAP lookups being made to a 2003 Domain Controller.  Ive one user whos failing to authenticate, but all my other users do and Im trying to see who. He authenticates ok, same password via other mechanisms to the DC, but just not via the Apache LDAP lookup.


I’m an LDAP novice so am looking for names of debug tools/methods etc.
