Vb.Net LDAP Authentication for Windows App
Posted on 2006-11-20
Just looking for some ideas in general and perhaps some code too. I'm developing a windows app (exe) for my company that is going to track hardware upgrades and so on just to give you a general idea of what the application is going to be used for. I'm going to use VB.net 2k3 for the front end and SQL Server 2k5 for the back end.
Anyway, rather the create user tables and seperate logins and passwords for everyone that will be using the application I'd like to use LDAP to handle user logins for my application. So I'm looking for some ideas or some code that will allow me to use LDAP for the User/Client logins for my applications. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can go about coding my application to use LDAP. I'm fairly good with Vb.net in general I just haven't had a need to code anything using LDAP until now so I'm not sure where to begin. Any help that you can provide in the matter would be greatly apprecaited.
