Hi

I am trying to integrate LDAP Authentication with JForum. There is one Problem....I would like to attach a sample entry for a user on a LDAP Server, so that you could have a better understanding of what my problem is:

ldap.login.suffix=ou=Guindy,ou=Chennai,ou=India,ou=mycompany,dc=mycompany,dc=com

The above is one sample entry for me in our LDAP server....So if I use this entry for the ldap.login.suffix, then JForum is allowing me to enter the forum..

Now the Problem...

Since our Company is present in many places, other users would have different entries depending on their locations, for example, one of my friends has an entry,

=ou=ec,ou=bangalore,ou=India,ou=mycompany,dc=mycompany,dc=com


So how to make JForum check through all the entries to validate an user...

I hope you got the problem

How to expect it to work? Allowing many ldap.login.sufix entries?

Hi

We in other applications use a Java code which does looking into all the entries and authenticate against one of them....Is there any possibility to tweak the code to do the same with JForum....

Yes, it is. Take a look at the LDAPAuthenticator.java class

Let us know the results.
