I want to connect and authenticate user to an LDAP server using VB. I also want to change my password on the LDAP server using VB. Are there any available OCX (free) that can be used? Any sample

Thanks

You must install the ADSI runtime (ADS.EXE) available from www.microsoft.com/ntserver/info/adsi.htm, and then add a reference to Active DS Type Library.

Note: Windows 2000 includes the ADSI 2.5 runtime. Installation of the above runtime is not required.

Here is some code snippet (not completed) but it will help you get going.  Once you referenced ADSI 2.5 you will find all objects in the object explorer (F2 key).

You will find all the needed info in the net or look at the ADSI samples in VB from Microsoft website.

...
'Declaration here
Dim machinename As IADs...
Dim username As IADS...
...
'Make the ADSI call for password change
Set oUser = GetObject("WinNT://machinename/username")
oUser.ChangePassword "oldpassword", "newpassword"
oUser.SetInfo
Set oUser = Nothing
...

Well i hope this was what you needed.

jackyx.

Please the the section "Tips on Comments and Answers" at the bottom of this page.

Hint:  if you have to put something like ("Well i hope this was what you needed.") in your post, it should probably be a comment.

Thanks
