Yes. I found it to be a pure client issue. The pGina software which is installed in the windows XP machine doesn't even connect to LDAP server when the LDAP username is already present in the machine. Actually, when a LDAP user logs in for first time, it first checks the local account. If the username is not found, then it contacts the LDAP server. So, once it authenticates LDAP user, it creates an account in the local machine. So when the same user logs in next time, it doesn't contact the LDAP server, but it checks the local authentication and authenticates. So, if the LDAP user password is changed in the LDAP server , it doesn't make sense. We are still able to login to the client using old password. I believe this is a bug in pGina and it should be addressed as it is a serious matter.
Did any one encounter this issue? Or any one using this software for authenticating LDAP users on windows machine?
I would like to know other methods of LDAP client authentication in Windows.
