Server :: Davmail - Thunderbird - GAL - LDAP Setup

May 4, 2011

I am using thunderbird and evolution on my computer at work using IMAP and have been trying to configure both of the clients to access the global address book from the companies exchange 5.5 mail server.

I read this but cannot get any results when I search for a name.


How can I obtain the information that I need from the Exchange 5.5 server to setup my GAL on thunderbird or evolution.

What can I run to get this information?

Ubuntu :: Thunderbird & DavMail To Receive MS Exchange Server Mail

Jan 31, 2010

Seems quite a lot out there are finding it simple enough getting Thunderbird/Davmail to work, yet I've been at it for days now and still no luck. I've finally given up altogether with Evolution last week, as it seems from weeks of reading and trying, there just isn't a solution for it to work with Exchange Server mail. Yes I tried brutus and its web sites are down so to get additions such as Brutus Keyring is impossible. (its all a long story for another day)Evolution is now uninstalled and in the bin.So now Im into the 5th day trying with Davmail and Thunderbird to get emails from my company mail exchange server.I am sure Im going to have better luck with Thunderbird from what Ive read so far, but it still eludes me how to set it up with Devmail and the information Ive found so far is not very clear. I am sure I am just missing the most simplest step somewhere along the line.

Can someone please post a detailed instruction on how to configure both Thunderbird and Devmail to work together and also how to test if Davmails is working?I can easily access my company emails via OWA with URl... from my home internet, so no issue there.From the efforts of trying to get Evol to work where it came up with the error. "Evolution connector is not compatible with Exchange 5.5", I assume our company server is running an MS exchange server version 2003 or older.

OpenSUSE Network :: Setup A LDAP Server Using The Yast-LDAP Server Configuration Tool

May 31, 2010

we have a weird problem with our opensuse 11.2 server installation.

We want to set up a LDAP Server using the Yast-LDAP Server configuriation tool.

This indeed already worked weeks ago until....this week.
Maybe some updates??!

I do not know what happend exactly. The server just does not want to start again and throws following error:

Starting ldap-serverstartproc: exit status of parent of /usr/lib/openldap/slapd: 1 failed

This happend after a little check of the configuration, but without a change, with Yast. Google delivered only "reinstall your box"-answers.

So.. i did that. And now the "mystical" part: The SAME ERROR occurs with a fresh vanilla system with a brand new and simple configuration (certificats, database, pw...the first Yast config dialog...). I did not change the way i set it up.

I remember, when i did this the first time with 11.2 on that machine, when no problems occured...everything was running out of the box (except the "use commen server certificate" option...).

Server :: LDAP Resources / Tips / Tricks For Small Vhost Setup

Apr 14, 2010

I have looked around a while for the answer, but nothing really fits. Here is the scenario. I have one server and a few openvz VE's running. I want to be able to auth whatever possible with LDAP. I have an LDAP server setup on the host and auth works for the server users. The tricky part for me is that every VE has their own domain. and if I can do that, they will also have the same login for their VE on said domain. I can setup users and the required software on the hosts and guest, but I guess I am confused at how to manage the multiple domain part of things.

not sure if proftp can do 'name based' stuff like apache, but if it can, we can point to the main server and handle it that way.

Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot Setup LDAP Via Server Guide / Hangs When Issuing 'ldapmodify' Command

I have been trying to set up an LDAP server for a development environment as part of an internship for a week now, and I cannot get past this point. I have been following the 10.04 server guide to set up LDAP here: URL...Once I get to the following point in the guide, it just hangs:"As an example of modifying the cn=config tree, add another attribute to the index list using ldapmodify:"I've been working on this for a week and can't understand why this won't work. I am fairly certain that I've followed the guide to a 'T.'Any idea why am I receiving a permission denied error? Is this a permissions issue with one of the config files?

OpenSUSE :: Thunderbird 3 Crashes Wit A Segmentation Fault Due To Ldap

Dec 29, 2009

I am using openSuse 11.0 and have installed Thunderbird 3 (MozillaThunderbird-3.0.0-15.1) from the mozilla/openSUSE_11.0 repository of the build service. Thunderbird does not start, upon invoking it I get an instant crash with /usr/bin/thunderbird: line 130: 12025 Speicherzugriffsfehler $MOZ_PROGRAM "$@" (Speicherzugriffsfehler is the german equivalent of "segmentation fault"). I do believe, that this problem is somehow caused by some failed LDAP access.

I am using an LDAP-based user account which causes the behaviour described. For testing purposes I created a local user account, which could start thunderbird 3 without a problem. Starting and stopping nscd did not work, neither did the removal of .thunderbird and .mozilla. Here are the final lines of an strace dump:

Server :: Apache Authentication: Allow LDAP Group OR User Named Guest But Not All LDAP Users?

May 25, 2011

I am using RackMonkey to map out my lab. Unfortunately, due to RM limitations, every user who accesses the site has write access UNLESS they are logged in as a user named "guest". I currently have Apache allowing only the users (sysadmins) in an LDAP group access to RM, but I would like to allow read-only access for other users as well.I found mod_authn_anon, but I am having trouble combining the two authentication methods. I am using Apache 2.2.18 (compiled myself) on SLES 11.1.

This is the common part:


AuthType Basic
AuthBasicProvider ldap anon
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

This part by itself works for the LDAP authentication:


AuthName "System Admins"
AuthLDAPURL "ldaps://," SSL
Require ldap-group cn=SysAdmins,ou=memberlist,ou=groups,

This part works by itself for guest access:


Anonymous guest
Anonymous_VerifyEmail Off
Anonymous_MustGiveEmail Off
Anonymous_LogEmail on
Require valid-user

But if I have both of the previous blocks enabled at once, then guest access does not work. If I throw in a "Satisfy any", then I am not prompted for a username at all. How can I allow access to this LDAP group and to a user named "guest", but not allow all valid LDAP users to log in?

Programming :: Ubuntu Hardy - Php-ldap - Can't Contact LDAP Server

I'm checking with a sniffer and there's activity going on between the client and the LDAP server... as a matter of fact, the sniffer shows that the search is producing one ldap item, however, php says it can't contact the ldap server (after it has bound and everything):

The script is working beautifully on another host with debian.

Server :: Virtual LDAP Server And Virtual Mediawiki Host - Can't Login With Users From LDAP

Jun 5, 2011

In the past I found some great help on this forum, so here goes. Bare with me because it's a long story. I'll try to be as complete as possible. I've installed and configured OpenLdap on a virtual machine with ip I've added 2 users via LAM. In the ou WikiUsers and the domain is wiki.local.

I've then created another host with ip with mediawiki installed on it. Then I added the extension LDAPAuthenthication. In the LdapAuthentication file I added this code (only the last paragraph is mine, I added the others to show it's location in the script):


$path = array( $IP, "$IP/includes", "$IP/languages" );
set_include_path( implode( PATH_SEPARATOR, $path ) . PATH_SEPARATOR . get_include_path() );


I know I'm close because I can't register any new users or accounts on the mediawiki site. Although I could before I added the LDAP service. This is indeed all just to test and get to know how LDAP works. That's why it's all virtual in VMWare. I did not really configure anything on the LDAP, i just installed it and chose a domain (wiki.local).

Server :: Difference Between /etc/ldap.conf Vs. /etc/ldap/ldap.conf?

Jul 13, 2010

can anyone tell me what is the difference between these two files of LDAP client /etc/ldap.conf and /etc/ldap/ldap.conf and for what purposes these two files gives services. Is it necessary to have these two files at a time ?

I use these files to install LDAP client to authenticate with our LDAP server by creating a symbolic link of /etc/ldap.conf to /etc/ldap/ldap.conf.

Ubuntu :: Setup SMTP For Thunderbird?

In trying to set up SMTP for Thunderbird, I made a mistake in the password, typed the wrong one in, and hit the checkbox to have Lucid remember it. Now it will report a password failure BUT won't allow putting a different password in.

Does anybody know if that password storage is managed by Lucid's keyring system, or Thunderbird's? In either case, where is that bad password located so I can clear it out?

I understand that a movemail account under Thunderbird should be able to pick up local email from the file /var/spool/mail/ralph and put it into the TB Inbox. ralph is my account name and ralph-laptop is my hostname.) However, I don't know how to set it up to make it work. Under TB I go to File>New>Other Accounts, click Unix Mailspool (Movemail), and click next. However, at this point I don't know what to enter. Should the name be ralph (my account name)? Should the email address be ralph@ralph-laptop or my external email address at " Should the outgoing user name be ralph or mylastname (part of my external email address? Should I use my default outgoing server, which sends mail to or should I use ralph@ralph-laptop, or just ralph-laptop?
