Hi Folks,

i am wondering if anyone has ever tried to authenticate user logins on a unix box against Microsofts Active Directory.
Microsofts Active Dir is somewhat simmilar to open LDAP, at least it can be accessd over LDAP from let's say Outlook but using some obscure authentication/encryption mechanism. (probably Kerberos).
But I didn't have luck to access ist from a linux box, probably i am missing kerberos encryption in my openldap libraries.
Has anyone had any luck in doing something like that ?
Or is it impossible or probably do i have to wait for ServicePack II for Win2000, i heard they will be fixing some Ldap compatibility problems in this release.

Thanks in advance
