NethServer Version:** 7.9.2009
Module: LDAP Server
I have been reading and searching, but can’t find a way to get it to work.
I’m using Nethserver as a “do it all server” in an isolated network. So I’m not exposed to the internet.
I can’t get a public domain, or certificate for this.
I want to use the NethServer LDAP locally to create users and groups that another applications in the network can use. (test/demonstration setup)
The LDAP server is running, and I have created some users and groups.
I can connect to it anonymously from another machine using applications such as ldapsearch and jExplorer.
It shows me all the configured users.
Whenever I try to use a Bind, it fails.
Simple bind, not using TLS or SSL is all that I need, but the NethServer seems to throw this out every time I try it.
I have errors coming back giving either “invalid credentials”, or “certificate not trusted”
Which I think is linked to it being self-signed.
I’m using the bind DN (ldapservice) and the password as published on the “Domain accounts” page to try to log in/Bind
I have also tried to copy the NethServer certificate, to import it in the other applications, as a certificate that can be trusted, but to avail. It also leads me in other rabbit holes with more issues.
(like JExplorer needs a keystore password to add the certificate, one that I don’t have, and the actual application I need LDAP for, doesn’t seem to have any option to add a trusted certificate anyway.)
Am I missing something?
Does the NethServer LDAP allow Simple Bind?
