LDAP & eDirectory
Posted on 2006-06-27
I need to authenticate users logging into our applications using their Novell user ID and password. There are some different teams where I work doing this but they are all Java teams and we are a VB team. I have be given the following information to use to connect to the test LDAP resource:
host is 10.99.88.33
base dn is o=abcauth
password is ldap9977
I was told I use this information to connect to the server. Then I query the system using the user’s name and password they supplied my application. I was told several of the Java teams here do it that way.
Can someone give me a simple version of how to do this using VB.net? Using the information above to connect to the LDAP server. Then verify the user name and password entered into textboxes txtUser and txtPassword are correct for the Novell account the user of my application has entered?
Thank you for your help.
