Howto for OpenLDAP for FREESCO 0.2.7

howto for OpenLDAP for FREESCO 0.2.7

What is OpenLDAP?

Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is an open-standard protocol for accessing X.500 directory services. The protocol runs over Internet transport protocols, such as TCP.

This howto will describe the most common use of OpenLDAP namely to serve a central e-mail address book.

Installation is complete.
Now you can use - OpenLDAP + SASL + OpenSSL

OpenLDAP is compiled with support for Cyrus SASL and OpenSSL
Use Google for details howto setup OpenLDAP and how to populate
the database
A sample database called 'stooges' is in place
The command: 'ldapsearch -x -b "o=stooges"' should show all records

The slapd.conf is using a simple clear text password now for the
sample database. This is *NOT* recommended!. Use the SASL tools
for an encrypted password. Again: use Google for details!

You'll need to create a certificate for secure use of LDAP!
I managed to setup a SSL connection using NetScape Composer
but failed to do so for OutLook Express

A good OpenLDAP tutorial can be found at:
http://www.direct-to-linux.com/TUTORIALS/LinuxTutorialLDAP.html

Default OpenLDAP is blocked from the internet, you'll need to remove
the firewall rules in the /rc/rcuser/rc_openldap script to allow external
access

Enjoy! webmaster@dingetje.homeip.net
