Multiple OUs in AD

Hello All,


Have a working FreeRADIUS server up and running, this is used for
authenticating student users on to a wireless network against a M$ 2003
server with Active Directory using LDAP.


Problem is I only seem to be able to authenticate users against one OU, if I
set the basedn simply to the domain the server just sits there and never
returns an accept or reject.


So how can I set my FR box to authenticate against all users in AD?


Here is my LDAP cfg from radiusd.conf.


        ldap {

                server = ""

                identity =

                password = password

                basedn = "ou=students,dc=bnc,dc=ox,dc=ac,dc=uk"


                start_tls = no

                ldap_connections_number = 5

                password_attribute = userPassword

                timeout = 4

                timelimit = 3

                net_timeout = 1

                compare_check_items = yes



Any help appreciated,
