Basically my portal for the Zeroshell subnet is authenticating against the Kerberos 5 database on the Zeroshell platform locally. Basically what I would like to do is the authenticate against my Novell eDirectory LDAP database whereby when the Captive Portal appears the username/password input go and authenticate against eDirecoty (with Zershell acting as the RADIUS passthrough server). Would this be best done using the LDAP/NIS option in Zeroshell to synchronize the directory? OR ideally can Zeroshell be used to pass credentials through to eDirectory for authenication.
Any help on this would be very much for appreaciated!
