LDAP Authentication Failed

Hi,

      I have installed openLDAP on windows vista. i correctly configure
the openLDAP server. when i do the ladpadd &ldap search by using the
following commands

Commands:
   ldapadd -x step1.ldif

   ldapsearch -D "cn=shalini,dc=mips,dc=com" -w serverpwd -b
cn=shalini,ou=people,dc=mips,dc=com"

It shows the output like:

# extended LDIF

Palani,

I’d suggest you use a 3rd party tool like LDAP Browser (www.ldapbrowser.com) to verify your server, then check your code too.

Hi Palani,

If you're trying to auth against ldap using Net::LDAP, might want to
try:

  ...
  require 'net/ldap'

  LDAP_HOST = '127.0.0.1' # or match your setup.
  LDAP_PORT = 389 # or ...
  LDAP_DN = 'cn=shalini,ou=people,dc=mips,dc=com' # or ...
  ...
  def ldap_auth(uid, pss)
    return false if uid.blank? || pss.blank?
    clean_uid = uid.gsub(/[^a-zA-Z0-9._-]+/, '') # or ..., to guard
against ldap-injection.
    usr = "uid=#{clean_uid},#{LDAP_DN}"
    ldap = Net::LDAP.new({:host=>LDAP_HOST, :port=>LDAP_PORT, :auth=>
{:method=>:simple, :username=>usr, :password=>pss}})
    return ldap.bind # returns true if successfully auth'd; false if
not.
  end
  ...
