SCRIPT Using LDAP-server for authentication

Post by FabulousGee » 2020-08-06 01:14

First of all: this currently depends on a pull request on GitHub. So it will just work if this pull request gets integrated or you do this yourself! See for further details.

If this has happened, then you might find this little snippet useful:

Code: Select all

Sub OnClientValidatePassword(oAccount, sPassword)
	testUserName = ""
	testUserPass = "somePassword"
	ldapServer = ",DC=example-domain,DC=com"
	sRoot = "LDAP://" & ldapServer

	Set dso = GetObject("LDAP:")

	On Error Resume Next
	Set ou = dso.OpenDSObject(sRoot, oAccount.ADUsername, sPassword, 77)
	rem For the last parameter, have a look at:
	rem Other methods:
	rem Set ou = dso.OpenDSObject(sRoot, testUserName, testUserPass, 77) for testing
	rem Set ou = dso.OpenDSObject(sRoot, oAccount.Address, sPassword, 77) for using email address instead of AD-Username

	If Err.number <> 0 Then
		Result.value = 1
		Result.value = 0
	End If

	rem Continue using standard auth from hMailServer
	rem Result.value = 2
End Sub
It is not yet tested but should do the job. Feel free to ask if there are any questions regarding this but it should be quite self-explanatory.
