Credentials differ when proxying

  When you join the mailing list, the message you get says: read

  That recommendation is repeated at least weekly, if not daily on this list.  The "man" pages and all other documentation says "run the server in debug mode".

  So... where *else* do we need to put that documentation in order for people to find it?

  The issue here is that you're hiding information.  Every messages contains *new* information which you didn't mention before.  When you post the debug output, you edit it to delete most of the useful information.  When the documentation says "don't do that".  So the debug output is largely useless.

  You're trying *very* hard to make it difficult for us to help you.  This is not helpful.

  In the end, the configuration you want is pretty simple.  It shouldn't take 4 months to configure the server to (a) proxy a packet from one system to another, and (b) authenticate a user against LDAP.

  Ask *simple* questions.  "How do I do X?"  You will get helpful answers.  If your questions are instead "I tried to do a bunch of stuff and it didn't work", then the only possible answer is "maybe do different stuff?"

  How do you proxy packets from one system to the other?  Read proxy.conf.  Configure a realm "".  Then, send packets containing "username at".  It's that simple.

  So... what did you do?  Did you configure a realm?  If so, how?

  You  said that you spent 4 months reading documentation.  That's nice... but what did you *do* to configure the server?  We need to know what.  For some reason, you're not telling us.  And I don't know why.  If you *do* tell us what you did, then we can give useful advice, and pretty quickly.

  Until then, we're stuck, because you're not telling us anything useful.
