View Full Version : Local apps not working when LDAP login

2nd January 2009, 03:22 AM
I setup LDAP login on my F10 installation.
But I can't seem to run any of the apps after I've logged in, for instance firefox just hangs.
If I open a terminal and su to root, I can run firefox under root.

Is this how ldap works? Or did I mess something up?

Dear AbsoluteMonkey,
I am just a Web Administrator. My new requirement is to implement Web login with LDAP service. I was reading many article about it no where i could get the proper information about LDAP. Can you please tell me how to configure LDAP as as web login page. I am using Fedora 10. I am also giving the guides to do everything with Linux step by step. Only what i know because i would like to help people to get the IT free of cost. You can take a look at it in http://www.vginov.com. Your guidance may help me a lot. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure how to setup it up for login. But this may help to how to setup LDAP.

Maybe if you give me more info on why you need a web login for ldap I might be able to give you further information.

Dear AbsoluteMonkey,

thanks a lot for your Quick response. The link is great. I am going through it. I think I may understand it after one or two experiments.

My need is here: If you have done before then you can help me.

I am having an intranet. I want the local system users should be able to login to the intranet site without creating an username for the intranet. I deployed moodle package. In moodle they have an option called Administration >> Users >> Authentication >> Manage authentication >Enable LPAD Server. I am planning to use it.

Thanks a lot for your help and if you know how to get this to work please share it with us.

Thanks once again.

Sorry I don't think I can be of further help. I've never done anything like that.
As for login, I believe the user needs to be authenticated thru gdm with the method you spoke of: Admin->Users_>Auth.... in order to access the nfs drive.
