LDAP Authentication - Groups

Post by Stian » Wed Jan 04, 2012 10:58 am

I am using Cerberus FTP server version 5 togheter with an Open Directory LDAP Server (Apple). I would like to give users with specific group membership in the LDAP catalog some special rights on the ftp server. The special rights I need to give them is read/write to one homefolder for this group.

To achieve this I am trying to use the search filter, but I am not able to make the server "list" users from the group I am testing with. What is the correct syntax for doing this?

I can give you the syntax for how to do that when the LDAP server is Active Directory but I don't know the search filter for OpenLDAP to filter by group name (AD has a special syntax for determining group membership). You might have more luck asking that one on the Open Directory LDAP Server forums or a general Google search.
