    Adito: Windows vs Lunix platform

    We originally tried Adito using a Windows XP build (can't find the URL we used). We go it all to work but then decided we would rather have it working in Ubuntu.

    Using Ubuntu Server 8.10 and following How to install Adito on Ubuntu Linux | Jared Heinrichs, We installed Adito. Unlike the Windows build however, Adito in this case will not connect to our LDAP. My guess is that I need to install some sort of LDAP connector/service on the Ubuntu build, but am not sure.

    Hi there,

    I'd have normally said yes, an ldap module needs to be loaded into apache but not in this case with Adito doing its own thing.

    What errors are you seeing, and have you configured DNS properly for it to find the domain?

    I really should find some time to knock this up as per our conversation in pm previously.

    Aaagh excuse my typo in the subject line

    When I couldn't get the linux build to work in the DMZ, we moved it back into the network for testing purposes.

    The error is something along the lines that it couldn't connect to the ldap service using the account provided (not a work at present so can not check). I will check how I've set up the DNS when I get back tomorrow, but I think it's fine. As far as LDAP goes, the settings are all IP so DNS shouldn't be a problem.... I would think; just really frustrating that the windows build worked lol

    I used the walk through from here. insall_walkthrough_debian_&_Active_Directory ? openvpn-als (Not my spelling mistake for once!)

    I wonder if this the tools.jar file that contains some ldap bits?

    Certainly this set of docs worked for me.

    Hope it helps.

    The error looks different to what I remember but I probably remember wrong :-)



    For the filter I used

    OU=RosminiCollege Users,DC=rosminicollege,DC=school,DC=NZ

    The username and password is the main system admin



    Not sure what else to try.

    Ok so the problem was

    "Why are you putting it in the dmz?... it needs full windows netbios access ???"


    So I've moved it back into the network and will punch a pinhole through the firewall.
