RE: [squid-users] Squid_ldap_auth stupid question

        -D binddn DN to bind as to perform searches
        -w bindpasswd password for binddn

I'm using those two options - I assumed that "-D domain\user -w
userpassword" was correct for what I'm trying - is this wrong?

I have a Java ldap program - if I append the base DN or anything to that to
login it fails, including if I just use the user - but if I have the
domain\user it logs in fine. I've spoken to the people who run the AD server
and they also say I will have to login with domain\user ?

Is there a way around this?

I never used \ in any AD LDAP logins, but I have to admit that I never
have tried to create a user with \ in his name if this is what you refer

What is the exact login DN you specify to squid_ldap_auth?

The login DN is not a login name, it is the LDAP object name of the user
object to bind to, usually "cn=user name, cn=users, dc=company, dc=com"
