METHODS ^

EXAMPLE USAGE ^

Apple Open Directory

    my $ldap = Authen::Simple::LDAP->new(
        host    => 'od.company.com',
        basedn  => 'cn=users,dc=company,dc=com',
        filter  => '(&(objectClass=inetOrgPerson)(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=%s))'
    );

Microsoft Active Directory

    my $ldap = Authen::Simple::LDAP->new(
        host    => 'ad.company.com',
        binddn  => 'proxyuser@company.com',
        bindpw  => 'secret',
        basedn  => 'cn=users,dc=company,dc=com',
        filter  => '(&(objectClass=organizationalPerson)(objectClass=user)(sAMAccountName=%s))'
    );

Active Directory by default does not allow anonymous binds. It's recommended that a proxy user is used that has sufficient rights to search the desired tree and attributes.
