Folks, I have a Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS installed. It is currently a file server but I have decided I would now like to centralise my users and passwords as my windows 7 client PCs are incresing and the local users and passwords are now becoming a chore. I am following this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/openldap-server.html.
I have ran the first command sudo apt-get install slapd ldap-utils and all seemed to go perfect but after a reboot I can login via putty but no longer through the web browser via webmin. I get a message to the effect of "the server rejected the connection"... Any ideas Gurus ?

Regards
John

First problem while looking into this is I cannot ssh in using putty using the test user that was setup during the initial openLDAP installation, I do not appear to have a /etc/pam.d/ssh as in the article hyperlink, finally the /etc/pam.d/webmin file only has 4 simple include entries :-(
Still Stuck !
