    Default External authentication to Zimbra LDAP

    I have looked over the forums, and can't seem to find a good answer to this. Most questions are asking about the other way around.

    I have Zimbra installed, configured, and running. I want to use the Zimbra LDAP server to authenticate other applications. All I need is a username/password for the other apps.

    I have tried to decode* the Zimbra LDAP myself, but havn't been successful. How is the username/email address and password referred to in the Zimbra LDAP?

    Currently, I am running a plain OpenLDAP server, and users are stored as follows:


    I tried the similar against Zimbra LDAP, changing a few parts, but have had no luck.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can look in the zimbra.schema file or use an LDAP browser to discover the tree. The passwords for LDAP can be retrieved from zmlocalconfig
