Hello

I'm using Alfresco 3.3 Enterprise (trial license) installed on a Ubuntu 10.04
I need to authenticate against an OpenLdap Server who does not allow simple bind.
If i want to do a simple query, need use a binddn.

A simple query example (on shell):
# ldapsearch -x -v -b <searchbase> -D <dn_of_a_privileged_user> -H ldaps://<server>:636 -W <query>

I know that synchronization subsystem does not allow a simple (or anonymous) bind, and it's require a privileged user to do it, who we can set with:
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.principal
ldap.synchronization.java.naming.security.credentials


I have a question, It's possible to Authenticate users using a binddn?


Thanks, and sorry about my english.
