rlm_ldap + bind as user authentication

I'm trying to use FreeRADIUS with an LDAP oracle (to be precise, an OpenLDAP instance that uses SASL authentication). From what I understand, this should happen with a single-user bind to the OpenLDAP server... Since it's supposed to use a bind, I'm not retrieving the password, which at this point explains the 'no Auth-Type found'.

Since Arran mentioned a while ago that binding with LDAP is a lot easier these days, is it correct that I use the following in my authorize section (after PAP):

update control {
        #  Only set the Auth-Type if it hasn't been set
        Auth-Type = LDAP

And then in the 'authenticate' section I use the below to enable binding?

Auth-Type LDAP {

If that's all (plus the user search in .../mods-available/ldap), that's grand :-)

Arran, can you confirm?
