    Arrow Authentication using Zend Framework

    Hi 'm developing an intranet using the Zend Framework, and we are going to implent a SSO with Zimbra Ldap.

    I want to use the Zend_Auth_Adapter_Ldap adapter that comes bundled with ZF.

    But i wanted to know what are the requirements for authenticating using the Zimbra OpenLdap. I'm trying with these setting but they don't work.

    host => "",
    useSsl => "0",
    accountDomainName => "",
    accountDomainNameShort => "SOMEDOMAIN",
    accountCanonicalForm => 4,
    baseDn => "DC=somedomain,DC=com"

    Can anyone guide me? or have any experience with this?

    Thank uxbod for your reply,

    It has helped me configuring the options to connect to the server, however I was wondering if I need to install everything specified in it just to authenticate users based on their email accounts.

    I'm currently trying to authenticate only using the Zimbra OpenLdap and I am getting the following error:

    2008-11-04T12:44:48-05:00 DEBUG (7): Ldap: 1: host=,useSsl=0,username=CN=config,password= *****,bindRequiresDn=true,baseDn=DC=domain,DC=com,,accountDomainNameShor t=DOMAIN,accountCanonicalForm=4
    2008-11-04T12:44:48-05:00 DEBUG (7): Ldap: 2: authentication failed: 0x20: No such object: (&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=jsmith))
    2008-11-04T12:44:48-05:00 DEBUG (7):

    Update: Zimbra is running on a linux CentOs 5 server.

    i think i solved it:

    I had the option to change the 'accountFilterFormat' that defaulted to: '(&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=%s))'
    and changed it to: '(&(uid=%s))'

    This seemed to do the trick.
