Hello,

I am trying to setup an AD/LDAP system on Windows Server 2003.  I cannot get Simple Binding enabled on the server.  

How can I enable simple binding?  When using ldp.exe, if I tick the "Domain" box when performing a bind, I can authenticate, but when I untick it, it fails to authenticate with the following error....

res = ldap_simple_bind_s(ld, 'ldap_rad', <unavailable>); // v.3
Error <49>: ldap_simple_bind_s() failed: Invalid Credentials
Server error: <empty>

Thanks,
Garrett

You need to be authenticated in order to bind to AD.
So either you're using invalid credentials like the error says or possibly you're using the option to use your logon credentials and are then connecting to a different domain.

By default all authenticated users would have access to read basic info in AD, especially binding like this.
