Hi All,

Thanks a lot for sharing your knowledge. I was looking out for authenticating users with LDAP server from my CGI page

Here is a brief overview on the integration:

1. Connect to ldap server.

2. Bind to LDAP server as anonymous.

3. Search in LDAP server with the username that is entered in CGI page.

4. With the obtained results we can confirm 2 things. One whether the user is present or not and if present we can get the dn of that user.

5. With the obtained dn repeat steps 1 and 2. While binding, use the password that is provided by user in CGI page

6. If bind is successfully, then the authentication is successful.

Hope the above information will be helpful for any one who is looking at same scenerio.

Looking for same support from all you guys.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
