Yes David, it's exactly what i want to do...
So, it's not supported in FD :-(
I tried to find another way to do that; ex: when i bind with a certificate with
no match entry in the LDAP directory, FDS say:
[10/Feb/2006:17:14:11 +0000] conn=510 SSL failed to map client certificate to
LDAP DN (No such object)
BUT, he's allow to view unprivilegied part of LDAP, because it's authenticated
by SASL before... like an anonymous account.
When he create an entry, the owner is "" (empty).. !?
So, is it possible to change this "default mapping" to something else to do
i want to do ? :-)
