ldap_ bind

int ldap_bind(integer ldapid, string userdn [, string password [, boolean trace]] )

ldap_ bind binds an LDAP connection to the specified credentials. The LDAP ID must be a valid LDAP connection ID returned by ldap_open. You can require an optional password.

If the optional trace parameter is set to true, any errors or warnings from the LDAP function are written to stdout.

If successful, it returns 0; otherwise it returns non-zero or an undefined variable.

rc=ldap_bind(ldapid, "cn=admin", "Secretpassword"); 
if ((!defined rc) || (rc != 0)) 
   reject "Bind to ldap directory failed";
