Hi All,

We have an LDAP Server (Iplannet 5 i think) and I would like to authenticate users from that LDAP and allow them to access certain pages on a website?

In addition to what our expert yuzh said

You could also download Auth_ldap 1.6.0  which is is an LDAP authentication module for  Apache, the world's most popular web server. auth_ldap has excellent performance, and supports Apache on both Unix and Windows NT. It also has support for LDAP over SSL, and a mode that lets Micros~1 Frontpage clients manage their web permissions while still using LDAP for authentication.

I'm going to have a look at both the links provided!
