Subject Re: Apache Win32 connection to NDS
Date Fri, 07 Dec 2001 17:26:09 GMT

Hi John,
I have couple of Apache servers that authenticate against NDS. But they all
are running Linux. Win32 platform is not a option.
This kind of setup will only work with:
- A novell server running Apache; or
- A linux server running Apache

For information on running it on a Linux box, please visit

Now Page 2 (theoratically it should work):
Since Novell e-directory is LDAP complaint, you should be able install
Apache on any platform (Solaris/Linux/Win32) with LDAP module, and
authenticate against Novell e-directory. I havent tried this. But in theory
it should work. This setup is on my plans for future testing.
For a LDAP module for Apache, please visit

Let me know if you need more help.

In Peace,
Saqib Ali

Subject:  Apache Win32 connection to NDS

We currently run Apache HTTP Server 1.3.22 under a  Win32 (2000) platform.
Our plans are to somehow use our Novell eDirectory  for security
authentication to our web site.  I would like to know if  anyone out there
has expreience in this type of integration.  It seems that  running Apache
under the NetWare 5.1 OS would make this easier but that would  not be the
first choice.  We would like to keep it under Win32 is  possible.  I would
appreciate some direction and the benefit of your  experience.

Thank you,
John Penny
