Ldap authentication in ROR

Hi
i am new to ROR and working on a project where i just want to
authenticate a user against our active directory.
if username and password is correct i want to store his full name in a
session variable and then wants to redirect that user on a specific
page.

i just need a simple way, how to bind with ldap and how to authenticate
a user.

thanks in advance.

I did some LDAP authentication awhile ago using the ruby-net-ldap gem.

I pasted some of the key code here (this is some of the first code I
wrote in Ruby/RoR - it works but may not be the most elegant):
