There is no (real) LDAP authentication with CFLDAP, its more to query an LDAP server not to authenticate to.
If you need authentication for your itnranet, disable anonymous access in your webserver and the brwoser will take care of it, the user details are in the cgi vars, just dump them.

Hope this helps.
