Wizard::LDAP::User - A base class for implementing users in the LDAP wizard



NAME

Wizard::LDAP::User - A base class for implementing users in the LDAP wizard


SYNOPSIS


  # From the shell:

  ldapWizard

  # Or, from the WWW:

  <a href="ldap.ep">LDAP administration</a>

  # Follow the "User menu"


DESCRIPTION

This package implements the handling of user objects in the LDAP server. It is part of the LDAP wizard.


CREATING OR EDITING USERS

The following items can be edited in the user window:

item_ldap_user_uid

This is the users login name, for example


  joe

You should restrict login names to 8 characters.

item_ldap_user_userpassword

This is the users password. You *must* fill in a password.

item_ldap_user_cn

This is the users real name, for example


  Jochen Wiedmann

item_ldap_user_description

This is a single-line description of the user.

item_ldap_user_mail

This is the users email adress, for example


  joe@ispsoft.de

You may omit the domain part in which case the default domain from the preferences will automatically be added.

item_ldap_user_mailforward

If mail for the user must not be stored locally, but forwarded to an external email account, then you have to fill in this field, the external email address.

item_ldap_user_mailforwardtype

This select box determines, when email is being forwarded. It is ignored, if the mailforward (see above) is empty.

The default is to forward mails always (in other words: Immediately). You may however choose to wait 1-5 days before forwarding email. The latter option requires support from your mailserver, for example by a cron job that takes care of forwarding.

item_ldap_user_pop3box

If the user has an external POP3 boxes, you may insert them here, for example


  username@my.pop3.server

The attribute is used by a cron job that is regularly mail from the remote box. The mail is then forwarded to the user.

This option requires support from your mailserver, for example by a cron job.

item_ldap_user_pop3password

Likewise, this is the password being used to fetch mail from the remote POP3 box, if any.

item_ldap_user_status

By default users have a status of ``mail'': In other words, they may read mail only. They may also have a status of ``ftp'', in which case they are accepted to login via FTP or ``admin'', in which case they have a regular shell account.

The users status determines its login shell. The possible shells are


  /bin/mailonly

  /bin/ftp_mail

  /bin/bash
