Subject Re: [users@httpd] LDAP / Active Directory Authentication problem.
Date Mon, 23 Apr 2007 08:30:06 GMT
Hi

Anybody has an idea for my problem ?
I tried ti sniff ldap packets, and I noticed that apache does not encode
the password in UTF-8 : a 'é' in password is encode E9 (iso code), and
when I try the same thing with LDAPSEARCH, the same letter is encoded
C3E9 (utf-8 code)

Is this relative to mod_ldap, or to apache configuration ?

Thanks. I really need to authenticate my users ;)
