Re: Setting up LDAP server

Hi Team,

I am on the look out for free support and advise. I have implemented a basic LDAP server such that it authenticates for my mail server. However this time I have been given a project wherein my LDAP works as an authentication server for user login as well as mails. Also it should have policies while authentication viz. it should disable USB ports for the user, it should set a background wallpaper and screensaver which should start within 20 secs. of the PC's idle time. It should also if possible mount automatically a partition which will be user dependent rather that PC dependent.

I hope your getting the picture for which i require your assistance. This is the first time I am working on such a setup. I would appreciate your valuable help and guidance in resolving and setting up an LDAP server as per requirement.

Thanking you in advance for your guidance.

Thanks and Regards
Santosh Balan

Are you looking for paid support? Several of us on this list are in the
business of determining client requirements then designing and building
solutions to fit, so I am sure you would get offers if you were to ask
for that service.

On the other hand, if you want free advice then I think you will have
to do more of the basic research yourself so that you can ask more
specific questions. There are lots of papers and guides on the web
that will help to get you started. Here is a pointer to some of mine:
