Re: Anonymous bind allowed when configured not to.

>From the debugs I did, it looks like jxplorer makes the connection,
but never sends a bind command. It goes straight to the search
command. So while anonymous bind is disabled, require bind was not on.
I set the require bind directive and now acts as necessary. Would it
be a wise change to implicitly include require bind when disallow
anon_bind is set?

The server doesn't treat different kinds of clients in different ways.  It could be jxplorer is ignoring the result, which would then mean its search query would do nothing either.
