Subject Re: [users@httpd] ldap authentication
Date Fri, 09 May 2008 09:12:29 GMT
Hi Krist,
i tried to access user name (who have authenticated via LDAP) using the
variable REMOTE_USER in python like:

if request.environ.has_key('REMOTE_USER'):
    name = request.environ['REMOTE_USER']
    print name

but it gave an exception, any clue by any other user also?

Thanks & Regards
