Hi: I have been looking around for the answer to this, and have not found it.
I am running... 4.7-RELEASE FreeBSD with... cyrus-imapd-2.1.10 cyrus-sasl-2.1.9_1 installed as ports. Compilation and installation seems fine but... I trying to authenticate with the standard shadow password, but keep getting this in the log... Jan 7 14:20:10 popper2 saslauthd: AUTHFAIL: user=user service=imap realm= [PAM auth error] Jan 7 14:20:10 popper2 imapd: badlogin: localhost.clinedavis.com[127.0.0.1] plaintext user SASL(-13): authentication failure: checkpass failed imapd.conf includes the following... sasl_pwcheck_method: saslauthd saslauthd is started using -a pam in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/saslauthd.sh I checked the processes, and it shows up. /etc/pam.conf is standard conf with only one line for imap... imap auth required pam_unix.so try_first_pass /usr/local/lib/sasl2/Cyrus.conf has... pwcheck_method: saslauthd it did have pwcheck_method: pwcheck but I changed it based on the notes that came off standard output during compilation. I have tried changing saslauthd to start with -a shadow, but it does not recognize the service. My understanding of this is that imap uses saslauthd for auth, saslauthd is looking, or should be looking at pam, and pam has a service (imap) configured for auths. However, it doesn't work. I am very new to pam, but would like to get it to work so I can do ldap auths instead of shadow auths. Any help, pointers to howtos I have not found about it, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
