Ubuntu Servers :: LDAP Authentication For Web Access?
Aug 26, 2011
LDAP Authentication for Web Access I am trying to build a LDAP server to allow access to the wireless network in conjunction with Meraki wireless access points. I am using Ubuntu 10.10 and trying to install OpenLDAP from their documentation but I keep running into the error "configure: error: MozNSS not found - please specify the location to the NSPR and NSS header files in CPPFLAGS and the location to the NSPR and NSS libraries in LDFLAGS (if not in the system location)" I have OpenSSL installed but I also got these when I ran ./configure

I've a webpage that has some links to videos. When an user click on that link, I need the user to redirected to the login page which check credentials with ldap server and then grants access to the video. I've searched google for some code but all I found is some samples that authenticates the user. But when the user enters the login credentials how do I implement that code in the backend and redirect to the video if the user can authenticate himself?
I've just installed Ubuntu Server for the first time with the goal as setting it up as a proxy server for our Apple computers here since I can get neither ISA of OS X Server's firewall to play properly. So far I have the machine authenticating against our OS X OpenLDAP server and multiple NIC's setup ready to be connected to the outside world. My question is does anyone have a preference on what proxy I should be using? So far my search efforts seem to of turned up Squid Proxy as a favorite among Ubuntu users but I can't seem to work out how to get it authenticating against my OpenLDAP server.
i am taking another stab at this. The last time i attempted it, it seemed like everyone had a different way to do it, but nobody could give me an answer on how to do it...
I currently have a Domain Controller Running sme server and a domain controller, using ldap as a backend. I have two file servers runing ubuntu 10.04. My overall goal is to have it so when i create a username on the domain controller, it is then automatically copied over to the fileservers. This way everyone will have their own username and password to access the fileservers and ill be able to track what people do on the fileservers.
The next necessity is for me to be able to apply permissions to the folders on the fileserver based on the users that are created on the domain controller.
I would like to know whether ldap can be used to authenticate wireless clients with my server.server and clients are connected to a wireless router and i am able to get wireless adapter work in my ubuntu. Is there any anything extra which is required or the openldap server will work for wireless clients?
neither of which exist in the repositories, or anywhere on the internet. the best I could find was a request to build a package from over a year ago...
I did find source that I can build... the Perl module builds and starts to begin the setup process -- but I get stuck at the point where it requires the SDK... which I cannot find anywhere in a plain downloadable form. the one I found seems incomplete:
Making a Samba Server with LDAP authentication. Will post as I go along. Found these sources, anything/hiccups I should know before jumping in? Figure would follow the official documentation then check the others for comparative errors.
My scenario is similar to this person scenario: http:[url]......Here at the clinics, we already have established leaf/shorewall firewalls. Our domain controllers are win2k3 boxes.I've installed ubuntu 9.10 on a sound desktop/server and installed two nics inside that box.How do I make Dansguardian talk to our domain controllers, and give users access to the internet via established groups? What would be the best way to do this?
I maintain a samba PDC for a small business, our current setup does not work very well; on a hardware upgrade I directled imported the old ldap database and attempting to add machines to the domain causes all sorts of trouble.
I'm 95% sure the original database (which predates my employment) was created using the idealx smb-ldap tools, unfortunately on our current platform (debian lenny) these tools seem to be broken; the only things hey seem to do reliably are set passwords and add posix users, asking them to do anything involving samba/windows causes errors. The idealx tools seem to be abandoned, and I don't know enough perl to try and fix them.
Since the idealx scripts seem to be abandoned, and most of the good samba+ldap how-tos references the idealx tools, I was wondering what people use nowadays to manage there ldap directories; surely they aren't importing .ldif files to add new users/machines like I've been doing. Are people just writing thier own management scripts/web-apps? Or are the smb=ldap tools just broke on debian?how to generate the NT/LM password hashes and proper SIDs, does anybody have anything they could point me to about this?
We're trying to validate LDAP authentication from Linux against our AD global catalog servers. I'm seeing lots of LDAP query tools, but what I need is a free/open source application that can use LDAP to query AD to authenticate... something as simple as entering the hostname/IP of our AD/global catalog server and the port, then passing an AD username/password to it to validate logon capability. Anyone know of any software/apps that can do this? I don't want to get into configuring Samba for LDAP or trying to authenticate my actual Linux server again AD... I just want an application that uses LDAP for authentication.
I have a openldap server running on one machine (fedora10) and pam_ldap.so and nss_ldap.so running on the other machine.
I have added a new user to the LDAP server database, this user is not created on client machine.
1. Can i login to the client machine using this new user?
2. Now if i try logging with this new user I am getting error messages, the error messages are as follows at client side
Sep 2 10:34:36 localhost sshd: Invalid user kim from 10.254.194.148 Sep 2 10:34:36 localhost sshd: input_userauth_request: invalid user kim Sep 2 10:35:16 localhost sshd: pam_ldap: error trying to bind as user "cn=min soo,ou=people,dc=samsung,dc=com" (Invalid credentials)
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:
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?
I am trying to allow my freshly installed ubuntu 10.04 to authenticate with ldap. I did follow the doc https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LD...Authentication and some other hints with no success.My needs is just to use an ldap existing server (active directory in my site, but i wish to use it via ldap, not via samba/ winbind) to validate users on services using pam modules.After the package installation the command getent passwd retrieve just local users and I don't understand if my ubuntu client is not querying the server or the server reply with some message.
One I cant figure out is a problem of authentication. I'm using open ldap server and try to authenticate a groupware (simple groupware) against it. As it fails, I tested with a ldap client to understand things better. Using GQ ldap client, I 'm able to browse my ldap tree successfully and to search some args from the base DN i specified. but when entering the exact uid as a search string iI got no answer whereas searching the cn returns the correct entry (and display its related entry including the uid I can't find ..) Here is the only thing I can trace in logs (syslog) when trying to seach firstname.lastname (= uid)
I have created a CA on my server then created a server certificate under that then exported it as a common server certificate.I have then gone to my LDAP server and enabled TLS and told it to use the common server certificate.Now on my client I have enabled LDAP TLS/SSL and it's asking me to download a certificate ... from where ? Do I export the certificate to a file and put it on a web server.If so what format as the export offers loads.
I'm trying to get LDAP working with 389 Directory Server on Fedora 13. I have the server all ready to go, and I can query it with the 389 console. But when I tried to move on to the next step, user authentication trough LDAP, it just won't work I followed the PAM Howto, but the given authconfig command doesn't work. If I manually add a user with the 389 console, I can't login with it.Since I had X11 forwarding working over SSH, I tried authconfig-gtk. I setup a SSL LDAP connection for this to work, but it still didn't work. I did have this working on my (now crashed ) Fedora 12 VM.
I installed Nconf software on a Debian server.I am trying to configure Nconf Authentication with LDAP.I edited nconf's authentication.php file accordingly and I installed php5-ldap package.When i enter user-name and password in Nconf's login screen.
I've added a new machine (desktop used by many users) to a network that uses LDAP (pam_ldap) for authentication. Can anyone post relevant configs to limit users by a groupOfNames? I've googled extensively and have found some partial comments, but no complete config examples or howto's.
The issue is as follows:
All users have one primary GID in their posixAccount entries, which is used to control access to the existing machines. So it's not really possible to change this. Now, I need to limit access to this new machine to a specific subset of users, all members of a specific groupOfNames. I can't seem to get pam_ldap to use a groupOfNames instead of a posixGroup.
We have an LDAP server (OpenDirectory on Snow Leopard Server--OpenLDAP essentially) and I am trying to configure our slackware hosts to use that LDAP server as the authentication mechanism instead of NIS/YP as they currently do.How do I change it, and is it just as simple as changing /etc/nsswitch.conf?
On Ubuntu server 10.10, with a relay smtp server with authentication via postfix; I keep getting 535: Incorrect authentication data. I'm sure my username and password is correct. Heres how I set up postfix: I created a file called smarthosts.conf in my /etc/postfix/ directory that contains the following:
my server uses plain text authentication on port 25. I would like to use security like SSL, but this particular server is unsecured.
Can any one tell me how to configure Tomcat ldap URL authentication perfectly? I've tomcat installed with port forwarding to http(80). I could able to confiure apache ldap authentication. For this i modified the file '/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-defaults' with the DocumentRoot /var/www.
But for tomcat '/usr/share/tomcat/webapps' I could not able to configure 'server.xml' file perfectly.
On this moment i configure a testenvironment with 1 Microsoft active directory server and 1 Opensuse 11 samba filesharing server. But i have a issue. The samba server is add to the domain and the servers can communicate with eachother. I can login to the domain on the samba server and the LDAP settings tab on yast2 samba configuration tool tell me that samba and the MS LDAP server can communicate with eachother. I can see the shares on the samba server but i can't autenticate myself. When i whant to logon than see i always "domain: domainname.local" and "access denied". My question is now how can i give the MS administrator account rights to view the shares and configure the rights for the other users.Samba config file
I have installed openldap version 2.4.21 and configured with the help of the site [URL] and the LDAP address book is working fine. But I need to create an LDAP directory such that it will contain the user name and passwords for the users and when user is logging to any application he is authenticated from LDAP directory
e.g Users who need to browse the internet need to authenticate with username and password for access from the firewall (Juniper Netscreen) and similarly other applications like oracle ERP such that they will have only 1 username and password stored in LDAP directory and all other applications will search for the user name and password for authentication.
I Configured LDAP Server on ubuntu Server 10.04 ,(using url ldap) and Client also it's working fine. After that I changed to ssl encryption and create certificate in server side. Now it's not authenticating from server it's shows Incorrect Password, but I can login though terminal if I am root user ,then it not ask any password it's logon to ldap user. After I changed to ldap server to ssl encryption and made one changes in client side uri ldaps://ip-address/ (/etc/ldap.conf).
I have more than 150 Linux desktop computer in my office IT setup.
I want to configure LDAP centralize network authentication for all the desktop computer.
My requirement is below mentioned.
The LDAP server will only authenticate the desktop computer at the log-in time when the user start computer.
The home directory of all the user should be create in their desktop local computer not in the LDAP server.
And flexibility of user log-in for every desktop. (any user can log-in any computer with his/her username and password)and the home directory will create automatically in the local desktop computer automatically the moment any user will log-in to any computer in the network and the LDAP server will authenticate for desktop-network log-in in to the computer.
