admin authentication + LDAP

  • Hi, I'm having the issue that after setting up LDAP authentication I can no longer use the admin user. How can I make ipplan accept LDAP users for "IPplan admin authentication" realm?

    Dear Users,

    I've writen a patch to solve this issue:

    This is called Group Admin (based on IPPlan for IPv6) -> http://www.lx-soft.com/ipplan/GroupAdmin.patch

    Then, you just have to put one(or many) users in a group called 'ADMIN' (or define any other name in your config file):

    INSERT INTO usergrp VALUES ('your userid', 'ADMIN');

    If you use an external Authentication like LDAP, do not forget to modify your config.php:

    define("AUTH_INTERNAL", FALSE);
    define("AUTH_EXTERNAL", TRUE);

    Dear Vincent,

    is there a manual how to install your patch?

    Dear nkonrad,

    There is no manual: It's a patch.

    1. Download IP Plan V6 beta
    2. Create a user (SQL)  and create a group 'ADMIN'
    3. Add this user on group ADMIN
    2. Patch as usual ( 'man patch' if you do not know how to use this program)
    3. When you log in again, you will have admin rights with this user.

    PS: I've stopped using IPPlan
