You may recall I've been trying to authenticate against an NDS password via an LDAP server... I have it mostly working (most code cannabalised from existing modules) except for one thing: I need to get the plaintext version of the password that the NAS sent in its access request packet into a variable. I am grabbing the supplied username as the $name passed to the finduser subroutine (or in other attempts via '$p->getUserName'). Whats the equivalent for getting the password, please? Advice welcomed. Thanks.
