LDAP problem

Posted on 2002-06-29
Last Modified: 2007-12-19
Any one tried ldap_init() function??? I am using this function but getting a problem.

If i call ldap_init(host_name, host_port) then value for field ld_host in returned LADPObj is NULL and any further
API call like ldap_set_option() crash down the system.

If i use ldap_open(host_name, host_port) it's initialized properly, but then I can't use ldap_set_option() function.

Please help me to solve out this problem, plz plz plz ...

Usually  ladp_init works. See, for example:
http://samba.org/doxygen/samba/head/pdb__ldap_8c-source.html  Or
But, if it is NULL, you can use  ldap_open

   /* Initialize the LDAP context. */
  if( ( ldap = ldap_init(ctxt->server, LDAP_PORT)) == NULL ) {
  if( ( ldap = ldap_open(ctxt->server, LDAP_PORT)) == NULL ) {
     //error message: "couldn't initialize LDAP"
     return 1;
, set some flag and don't use ldap_set_option...
