Use a free LDAP server with Address Book
Authored by: meitar on Apr 30, '08 12:09:26AM

This sounds utterly awesome, but I can't seem to get it to work in Mac OS X 10.5.2. I tried using the command line ldapsearch tool but that didn't work either. Specifically, I'm using Address Book.app at Version 4.1 (687.1). Here are the settings I've used in the LDAP preferences:

Name: FreeLDAP.org Tests
Server: ds1.us.freeldap.org
Port: 636 (though I also tried to use 389)
Use SSL: Checked (though I also tried unchecked—both port combinations)
Allow self-signed certificates: Checked (though I also tried unchecked—both port combinations)
Search Base: o=entic.net
Scope: Subtree
Authentication: Simple
User name: uid=myusername, ou=People, o=entic.net
Password: my password

It's a no-go. The command line gives me error output like this:

SASL/EXTERNAL authentication started
ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s: Unknown authentication method (-6)
	additional info: SASL(-4): no mechanism available: 

or like this if I try to use SSL (with the -Z flag to ldapsearch):

ldap_start_tls: Connect error (-11)
	additional info: error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed

What might be wrong, or is FreeLDAP.org simply not compatible with Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard?
