proftpd LDAP auth failing

We recently purchased SuSE Linux Enterprise Server. After we got the thing installed, I was very surprised to find proftpd wasn't on the CDs (pre-compiled).

I compiled proftpd with mod_tls and mod_ldap, and all is well... except the LDAP.

I can log in via ftp fine as a system user. However, SuSE prefers all the auth information in LDAP. I like the idea, but unfortunately, I've never used LDAP. I know what it is, but I have never worked with it.

Here is my LDAP portion of my proftpd.conf file:
# LDAP Authentication
<IfModule mod_ldap.c>
LDAPDefaultAuthScheme clear
LDAPServer localhost
LDAPAuthBinds on
LDAPDNInfo ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com passwd
LDAPDoAuth on "ou=people,dc=domain,dc=com"

I have verified that the is where the users are located.

I have tried it without LDAPAuthBinds and without LDAPDefaultAuthScheme, with no luck.

I'm assuming 'passwd' is the password used to access the server. I don't know though.

I'm also assuming it is comparing passwords to the 'userPassword' field of the user. I have had SuSE write the passwords to that field using 'blowfish' and 'DES' (linux default), all with the same results.

Any suggestions?

Utilize the support contract that comes with the installation from beginning to end so that you can get a supported ftp solution.
