Re: trying to understand referrals

Hi Chris,

my problems arose from not understanding the whole rebinding process.
I understand that the LDAP structure must be prepared to handle
referrals and to make a "backup" of the information that is affiliated
with the original LDAP server. Before I would think that storing this
information was my job. But really, the only thing one has to do in
that ldap_set_rebind_proc callback function is to make a bind while
OpenLDAP takes care of the rest.
