thanks for your reply. I've got a couple brief questions.

It did strike me as odd, so that's good to know.

In fact I would like to do this. But I haven't gotten far enough into
the documentation to know how. Perhaps just uncommenting the ldap
lines in the authorize section is sufficient.

There doesn't appear to be any difference, either is simply a basic
username like "test1" "test2". In the debug output they look like
 User-Name = "test2"

Perhaps this is something REALMs would help distinguish? Looking
through inner-tunnel I see there is a suffix call that tries to
determine which realm is provided. In my case, the realm is null for
all users. If I were to create jumpcloud usernames with
user at something, what would the "suffix" routine do with it, and would
I be able to test for this in an if statement?
