Is it source code? If so then Installation would be done using:

#./configure nss_ldap
#make nss_ldap
#make install nss_ldap

You can also check the INSTALL file in your package by UNTARing your package.

I guess it is source code i dont know, the company PADL makes it you can check it out and let me know.how to use it all we are doing it providing this server with ldap communication for single sign on.

the question is do i have to nss_ldap or something else?

can anyone out there help me with this

if the downloaded file ends in .tgz, it's most likely a source tar ball. As uetian1707 said, unpack and run configure, make and make install. Check README and INSTALL file for more detail. If you want to auth against AD, you probably need pam_ldap too.

If it's redhat distro, do a yum install nss_ldap or up2date nss_ldap rpm package. It will provide pam_ldap and nss_ldap. Run authconfig afterwards to fillin some required info. You may need to tweak /etc/ldap.conf afterwards to suit your company.

ckhsu1977 i am new to linux and i need help step by step on how to install the correct software for ldap communication, please help thanks
