Re: can't get slapd to do pass-through authentication

Did you create a lib/sasl2/slapd.conf, or wherever your sasl

   I created a lib/sasl2/slapd.conf file again and in it specified:
pwcheck_method:	saslauthd
saslauthd_path:	/var/state/saslauthd/mux

And I confirmed that that is, indeed, the path that saslauthd is listening on (it shows when I run saslauthd with the -d -V flags). But when I ask OpenLDAP to authenticate a user whose userPassword attribute is {SASL}bbice@ldap the saslauthd daemon shows no sign of having received an auth request.

If I run testsaslauthd -u bbice, however, the authentication works ok and saslauthd shows testsaslauthd connecting to it. So it appears slapd isn't contacting saslauthd at all? How does slapd determine what path to use for the saslauthd socket? lib2/sasl/slapd.conf? Or saslauthd.conf?
