I am implementing authentication with AD, sunone and novell using LDAP. Everything is working fine. I just want to cofirm my understanding regarding authentication using service account. (means username and password which can bind with directory. This is
in picture only when there is a setting in directory which does not allow any joe... to authenticate with directory.)
For Novell, I am using Novell.directory.dll and for AD and Sunone System.directoryservices class.
Now in Novell.directory.dll has facility of binding anonymously or with identity and then perform the search. This allows to use service account to bind the directory and then perform actual username search in it.
Just wondering same thing is possible in system.directory class also. Means How could I bind using admin username and password and check actual username and password.
Any suggestion or explanation would highly welcome.
Thanks for your time
