I am using this wiki to configure LDAP client in Ubuntu. Now i am looking for a GUI tool to configure LDAP client in Ubuntu. Because my colleagues( They don't have much technical knowledge) often complains that configuring LDAP client in ubuntu is little difficult. Is there any simple GUI tool for this?.
There is the LDAP Administration Tool available from the repositories.
There is also the GQ LDAP Client , but it's a bit older and (I'm going to be blunt) not as good. :)
It might have a few dependencies like
Once you install the package it is going to ask you for the LDAP login related details, for example, the URI and base domain. Provide them, and you should be well on your way towards getting the LDAP authentication right.
After you have LDAP packages installed, you can install
to verify that the client can bind to the LDAP master server.
phpLDAPadmin (also known as PLA) is a web-based LDAP client. It provides easy, anywhere-
accessible, multi-language administration for your LDAP server.
Its hierarchical tree-viewer and advanced search functionality make it intuitive to browse
and administer your LDAP directory. Since it is a web application, this LDAP browser
works on many platforms, making your LDAP server easily manageable from any location.
phpLDAPadmin is the perfect LDAP browser for the LDAP professional and novice alike. Its
user base consists mostly of LDAP administration professionals.
Its best Features :
- Install apache
- Install phpldapadmin
Enter your browser and type : localhost/phpldapadmin
Connect to ldap server database
ITs a Great ldap manger
The LDAP Administration tool you provided is to administer the actual LDAP database. It would be nice if there was an LDAP client such as the one available in OpenSuse so that Ubuntu can be easily configured to authenticate against the LDAP database. At the moment it's a real pain.
