nss_ldap SSL/TLS problems..
I'm trying to set up an ldap server on FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE. I sent this to the freebsd-support list as well, but I don't think this is FreeBSD specific so I thought I'd ask here too.
I installed all of the latest versions of openldap24-server, openldap24-client, nss_ldap, and pam_ldap.
I do any sort of ldapsearch or 'getent passwd' or anything, everything
works perfectly. The only time I have trouble is when I'm logging in
via SSH..then it gets really weird.
1.) When I log in as a user in LDAP only and give the incorrect
password first and then supply the correct password, everything works
fine. If the user is in wheel, I can sudo.
2.) When I log in as the same user and give only the correct password
the first time, it hangs for roughly 45 seconds and then lets me in.
Even though this user is in wheel, it says that the user is not in the
Here are the log messages I get in auth.log that correspond to the events above:
sshd: pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user "uid=user..(cut)..." (Invalid credentials) # This is the incorrect pw
sshd: error: PAM: authentication error for user from localhost #Incorrect pw
sshd: nss_ldap: could not search LDAP server - Server is unavailable # correct pw
sshd: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for user from localhost port 32935 ssh2 #correct pw
When I enter just the right password, the first time, I get this in the log:
sshd: Accepted keyboard-interactive/pam for user from localhost port 51972 ssh2
sshd: nss_ldap: could not get LDAP result - Can't contact LDAP server
Again, when SSL/TLS are disabled, I get normal log output and none of the weird stuff above..
turned on debugging in nss_ldap.conf and found that each time I gave
only the correct password (corresponding with the 45 second hang) I
found this in the debug output:
...bunch of normal looking output...

I get the above regardless of whether I'm using start_tls or ssl.
If you have any insight, it'd be really useful. I've spent tons of time scouring lists for help and haven't found anything yet..
