Subject RE: Any doc about how to use ApacheDS as a proxy
Date Mon, 10 Dec 2012 22:42:25 GMT
If you are not tied to Apache DS, you may want to consider OpenLDAP.  It has
the proxy function built in.   Is there specific reason/business case for
using ApacheDS as LDAP proxy?

I really appreciate your response. 

I did add a new interceptor and I was able to intercept (actually "bind" was
the one fitting my need since I need the passwd) it. I could get all the
information and change information. 

But what I need is to make it flow through and eventually goes to another
LDAP server for the final processing. 

I am using 1.5.8 version and could not see the "" you mentioned. It seems that is in 2.0. But I
want to use a stable version and did not go 2.0. Will this still be doable
in 1.5.8?

you can add a new intereceptor
take a look at the existing intereceptors and the class in apacheds/interceptors/authn module to
see how to perform delegated authentication
