Hi ,

I am using LDAP authentication in tomcat 5.5

my settings are as below in server.xml :

<Host>
...


<Realm className="org.apache.catalina.realm.JNDIRealm"
debug="99" connectionURL="ldap://IP here:389/"
userPattern="{0}"
connectionName="MyNameHere"
connectionPassword="MyPasswordHere" />



</Host>

Settings in web.xml :

<security-constraint>

<web-resource-collection>
<web-resource-name>Logging Area</web-resource-name>
<description>
Only registered members can access this area.
</description>
<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>

<http-method>GET</http-method>

<http-method>POST</http-method>

</web-resource-collection>

<auth-constraint>
<role-name>*</role-name>
</auth-constraint>

</security-constraint>
<security-role>
<role-name>*</role-name>
</security-role>
<login-config>
<auth-method>BASIC</auth-method>
<realm-name>
please type User name format as:
</realm-name>
</login-config>


If I dont give my connectionName and connectionPassword I get "cannot bind" exception. So, probably the ldap server does not accept anonymous connections.Correct me if i am wrong.

After giving connectionName and connectionPassword, I am getting this error :
SEVERE: Exception performing authentication
javax.naming.InvalidNameException: "Domain\user_Name here": [LDAP: error code 34 - 0000208F: LdapErr: DSID-0C090654, comment: Error processing name, data 0, vece ]; remaining name
