User authentication with LDAP


Hello everybody,

I have two computers running Ubuntu, and my ultimate goal is to set up the "server" box as an authentication server for users using LDAP. I then want to configure the "client" machine to access the server when logging into the ocmputer to authenticate the credentials. I have no experience with LDAP and I was wondering if somebody could help me out. I have openldap installed on the server and it runs properly, but I am not sure where to go from here. Thanks

I am in the process of doing that same thing. Here is a link that I have found that walks you through it.

I have tried working out of that guide, however when trying to add the group.ldif entry I get the following error:

Quote:
ldap_add: Invalid syntax (21)
additional info: objectClass: value #0 invalid per syntax

I never had that problem when setting up the LDAP server, but I did some googling and found this. Maybe this is will help.

Well I added those entries and it still fails to work. I think I have found the problem is that it lacks the posixGroup objectClass. Possibly the problem is that the guide is created for Debian and we are using Ubuntu, so possibly something that is included with Debian is lacking in Ubuntu. Iam not sure but its a bit frustrating. Thanks for helping though, I appreciate it.

well i have a fair bit of information on LDAP on my website listed below, check it out if you want.

http://www.yourhowto.org/content/view/16/9/ - Setup OpenLDAP

http://www.yourhowto.org/content/view/35/9/ - LDAP linux client with OpenLDAP server

you might want to look at setting up a web based LDAP interface like phpladpadmin or LAM
