If you are unsuccessful at attempting to bind to an object residing in a Netscape Directory Server and you are using ADSI in VB or VBscript, you are likely using the incorrect Authentication flag used to define the binding options.
The method call used to bind to a directory server object using ADSI is OpenDSObject and it requires four parameters. One of the parameters is the authentication flag. The documented authentication flags are as follows:
ADS_SECURE_AUTHENTICATION = 0x1 ADS_USE_ENCRYPTION = 0x2 ADS_USE_SSL = 0x2 ADS_READONLY_SERVER = 0x4 ADS_PROMPT_CREDENTIALS = 0x8 ADS_NO_AUTHENTICATION = 0x10 ADS_FAST_BIND = 0x20 ADS_USE_SIGNING = 0x40 ADS_USE_SEALING = 0x80 ADS_USE_DELEGATION = 0x100 ADS_SERVER_BIND = 0x200
None of these will work in this context with the Netscape Directory Server. The value, 0, must be used to bind success fully as in this example:
Set ADs = GetObject("LDAP:") Set ADsObject = ADs.OpenDSObject(strADsPath, strADMIN_DN, strADMIN_PW, 0)
Try this and you will succeed.
