Freeradius - LDAP Authenication

Kris and List

Still having no luck getting rlm_ldap to work. I used a packet sniffer to
check traffic and all I see is a SYN packet to the ldap and the a SYN back
to the radius followed by a RST packet from the radius server to the ldap.
Cannot decipher any user details in the first packet so I assume none are
being sent. 

I searched the archives for this and came across a patch for ver 0.6, can I
assume that this was rolled into subsequent versions?

Not sure on how to proceed any other pointers any one?

For sure.... one other idea, then...

If your structure is this:

should this maybe be "," ?
(note trailing periods, making an FQDN)

Or perhaps if your structure is this:

should this maybe be "," ?

Just a thought... your original looks like a typo, based on the fact that
the two fields are not being joined by a comma.
