    Default LDAP search base

    I am using Zimbra LDAP and want to authenticate the users of VidyoPortal from it. I am having problems setting the search base. I took a capture on my firewall, where I can see the error object not found. The initial authentication of Bind DN and Bind Password is successful, but when I try a test authentication it says object not found. My user is created in the domain "i2cinc.com"

    The setting that I am using are shown in the screen shot.

    Can someone please suggest what should be written in the search base??

    I have changed the Search base and the filter according to the above link. But still no luck...

    I cannot find anything in LDAP logs of zimbra. I am pretty sure the problem is with the search base or filter.

    Hi,

    try with this

    dc=i2cinc,dc=com

    you have to write 'dc' lowercase.

    I tried to check the LDAP logs. I have gone through zimbra.log, audit.log and mailbox.log. I couldn't find any entry in any of these logs.

    Can you tell me when an LDAP authentication fails where is it logged?

    Check the mailbox.log and the audit.log files if log something.

    Also specify the ldap port in the URI:

    ldap://mail.i2cinc.com:389

    Are the ldap server achievable on 389 port?

    Regards

    Yes it is connecting to the ldap server. The VidyoPortal that i am trying to integrate with LDAP uses the Bind DN and Bind Password to authenticate to ldap server which is successful. Then a new window asks fro a test user authentication. When I enter my user 'ahasan' and my password, it fails, as it cannot find ahasan. The screen shot shows the capture I took on the firewall.
