Connect Thunderbird to Win2003 LDAP Active Directory
Posted on 2010-08-31
I am trying to setup a shared address book for Thunderbird users. I'm using Active Directory Service as the shared address book. Problem: After setting up the LDAP connection in Thunderbird, no records are returned.
On the server, I ran LDP.exe and established an LDAP connection with Active Directory using, Connection, Connect... Then when I clicked Connection, Bind..., I had to use "Bind with credentials" to create a successful bind. After that, I am able to run a successful search which returns the results I want.
(I've logged in with a user name and password, NOT the admin credentials.)
However, in Thunderbird, the only two types of Login are Simple and Kerberos. In LDP.exe 'Simple Bind' does not work for authentication, so I'm guessing that's why it doesn't work in Thunderbird. How can I make Simple Binding work? Or what other method can I use for the login?
