Hi, I have worked with Marcelo Araujo to port OpenBSD's ypldap to FreeBSD current.
In latest current, it should be possible to put in /etc/rc.conf: nis_ypldap_enable="YES" to activate the ypldap daemon. When set up properly, it should be possible to log into FreeBSD, and have the backend password database come from an LDAP database such as OpenLDAP There is some documentation for setting this up, but it is OpenBSD specific: http://obfuscurity.com/2009/08/OpenBSD-as-an-LDAP-Client http://puffysecurity.com/wiki/ypldap.html#2 I did not bother porting the OpenBSD LDAP server to FreeBSD, so that information does not apply. I figure that openldap from ports should work fine. I was wondering if there is someone out there familiar enough with LDAP and has a setup they can test this stuff out with, provide feedback, and help improve the documentation for FreeBSD? I would also be interested in hearing from someone who can see if ypldap can work against a Microsoft Active Directory setup? Thanks. -- Craig _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
