LDAP Disabling anonymous binds stops Netware client from doing contextless login

Edirectory 8.7.3.3
Netware Client 4.9.0 SP2
Proxy_User has been created with blank password.

I have been instructed by our auditors to disable anonymous binds on the LDAP server object.

When I do this the LDAP contextless login feature of the Netware client stops working.

I've been reading the documentation and tids on ldap and feel as if I'm going in circles... :)

Can someone lend a hand, or point me to a good, complete document that discusses LDAP configuration, security, requirements, etc?

Thanks in advance.

Assuming it should work (which I would assume) it sounds like the proxy
user may not have necessary rights to the tree.

TID# 10087126 seems to address a similar issue.
TID# 10088798 seems to discuss setting up what you are trying to do, if you
have not already seen it (client-side).

Anyway, make sure the user has rights to browse the tree, or at least down
to where users exist.

Let us know how you resolve it, please.

Good luck.

Netware client not seeing new NW6 tree in login client
Hi everyone. I have a small tech lab, and had two NW servers running merely for training purposes. A 5.1 box and 6 box. Both ran fine and saw each other, etc.... I downed the 5.1 box and wiped the 6 box with a fresh install. All went well, created new NDS tree.....now on the client XP and 2KPRO, the netware client login app cannot find the new NDS tree on the freshly installed NW6 box, and the windows login fails too, all I can do is log in locally to the work station. What did I miss here? I checked the properties of the client app, wiped out any set preferences for the...

LDAP Contextless login and 802.1X WLAN login with Aegis client
Hi. Is there any solution to the problem stated in subject? LDAP contextless logins can not work in a 802.1X WLAN solution since the client does NOT have network access until after it has logged in. Currently we disable LDAP contextless logins and "Workstation Only" flag for workstations that need WLAN access, is there any better way of doing this? /anders Anders Westerberg wrote: > Is there any solution to the problem stated in subject?

Slow login into Windows GroupWise Client without Netware Client installed
Hi, Customers GroupWise version is GroupWise 7.02HP1a with GroupWise 702 Agent Hot Patch 2 Rev 1 SP2 installed on a Netware 6.5 SP6 Server. The users don't have access to the Netware filesystem (no Netware cient, cifs or anything else). The login needs nearly a minute after entering the login credentials. I tried to remove the sdd - same problem. Although I know GroupWise 7 supports a restore area without direct file access I removed the postoffice from the member list of the restore area - same problem. Maybe I have to reboot the poa after doing that? I cross-checked wi...

Disable anonymous binds for LDAP
I am using Netware 6.5 SP2 Edirectory version 8.7.3.3. I would like information on disabling anonymous binds for LDAP. Can't find any attributes. Novell knowledgebase was not much help. I need to disable anonymous bind because ISS Xforce vulnerability scans say this is a vulnerability "HOLE". Can anyone help? In the LDAP Server "Restrictions" page, you should have an option to disable anonymous binds. It's at the bottom of the Connections page. This is set using iManager - the ConsoleOne snapin - as far as I know - has not been updated to present...

LDAP Contextless Anonymous Binds
We have been using ldap contextless login for several years. We are currently setting up Cisco ACS ldap authentication and realized that we were able to do anonymous bind queries. Looking at our current Novell ldap setup, I noticed that on the restrictions tab of the the ldap server there is an option for bind restrictions. When set to disallow anonymous simple binds we get an erroneous error that no ldap server was setup. Our current ldap setup is public has inheritable browse on the cn attribute. Should non-authenticated users be able to query ldap? -- wex005 ------...

Interrupt Netware Client login?
Would anyone know of a way to interrupt the Netware Client login process? For example, you type in a username or password and hit OK, and you immediately realize you typed in something wrong. The Netware client tries for about a minute, two minutes to log in...which is obviously unsuccessful. Is there a keystroke (like a CTRL-BREAK) or some other method to interrupt the login?
