I'm writing an preoperation authentication plugin for OpenLDAP, but I
have trouble finding any documentation whatsoever on this. So most of

P.S.: What I'm actually trying to achieve is to do RADIUS
authentification via an external library. But I want to send the
client's IP in a Calling-Station-Id attribute, so I cannot simply
write a password check function, right? If you got any ideas that are
better than a preop module, please tell me...

You should be able to accomplish this via a SASL mechanism (and possibly an
existing one), which would not require any code changes within slapd or
client libraries. See sasl_server_new(3) and its ipremoteport parameter.
