Hi all!
I'm new with LDAP and now I have to configurate phpBB 3.0.4 for LDAP
authentication in Windows OS.
In the same machine I set LDAP server using ADAM, with the following:
- a user having username 'admin' and the password 'mypassword'
- the group 'forum', containing the same user 'admin'

In phpBB (with phpinfo), LDAP module is correctly loaded.

In phpBB authentication panel I set the following:
authentication: LDAP
LDAP server name: ldap://localhost:390
porta del server LDAP: (not specified)
dn base LDAP: CN=forum,CN=users,DC=mycompany,DC=int
uid LDAP: uid
username filtering LDAP: (not specified)
attributo e-mail LDAP: (not specified)
LDAP dn user: admin
password LDAP: mypassword

but phpBB is not able to connect with that user/password.

What's wrong?

Thanks to all!
