LDAP Disabling anonymous binds stops Netware client from doing contextless login
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.
Network / Email Admin...Slow login with LDAP Contextless login enabled
Has anyone run into the problem were users take over a minute to login?
If the user does a logout and then login again without restarting the
machine it takes 10 seconds.
So the problem is only when the computer is restarted.
If I disable the LDAP Contextless login in NWClient 4.92Sp2 the login
takes 10 seconds and the problem is gone...
The environment is NW6.5 SP6 ( I know, we will upgrade to SP8 as soon
as possible :-)
eDir is 18.104.22.168 and will also be upgraded asap.

I work for a school board in Ontario, and we are putting in 600 Windows
7 workstations this summer. We are having problems getting ldap to work.
We have been using the �lgncl.zip� files from cool solutions to get
contextless login to work on our WinXP machines. That doesn�t work on
the Win7 machines.
On the LDAP contextless login tab we have put in about 7 server and
tree ip addresses with the defaults. We created a reg file that we
change on the image depending on which school server we want to login to

Is it possible to have BOTH LDAP Contextless login AND RDN login available
AT THE SAME TIME? I'm asking because I would like to use contextless login
but it would generate far less helpdesk call if I could still retain RDN
login. When I tried it, it gave an LDAP error when I entered a RDN (ie,
sylvain.adm instead of just sylvain) using the NW4.9SP1 client on Windows
Not to my knowledge; only the "common name" portion goes into the
"Username:" field and the actual context of that object goes into the

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

We are having trouble figuring out why we are suddenly having an issue
with contextless login. We are not aware of any changes to the server
(netware 6.5- SP8). Every thing was fine at the end of the day
yesterday. Now, today, a box pops up that reads:
LDAP Contextless Login: No LDAP server specified
We've rebooted the server, but no luck. Any ideas as to what we can do
to get this working?

I can't use a generic windows local ID because the local ID needs
adinistrator privileges and I don't want to setup a local ID with no
password where it could be accessed by anyone

When you try to use unsecure LDAP does it work then ?
yes, this works okay.

I am having problems with LDAP contextless login. I had it working with
4.9sp1a and then it stopped. I get a user not found. I have tried several
servers all of which worked before. I can also query those servers with an
LDAP query tool. Any ideas?

I try to setup contextless login in my organisation (schools). I configured
my Netware client (4.91 SP2). When I log with my username (I have all
rights), everything's OK but when I login with a student username (limited
rights), the client doesn't do the login scripts. If I deactivate
contextless login, login scripts work fine.
Anyone can help me ?
Are you sure the user's are actually still authenticating to NDS?
Check "NetWare Connections" under properties of Network Neighborhood.
This does not make sense since the logon scripts run after

Here is the problem - LDAP contextless login works.
However, in some buildings after typing in a user account the search seems
to take 5 - 10 seconds where in other buildings the search response is
almost immediate. In one building where a static IP address is assigned,
the delay occurs, if the same machine is setup with DHCP the problem goes
away and the LDAP response is immediate, crazy.
Any ideas helpful.
