FM serving LDAP

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm not sure if it's possible what I'm trying to do but here it is, first of all I'm using FM server and not advanced.

I'd like to be using an ODBC connection, what I have is multiple "users" in a table in Filemakers, fields are called "name" for username and "jobno" for password. I'd like to use these fields to serve as an LDAP, so that I can authenticate with Joomla as my CMS and Rumpus as my FTP server trough the FM database. Is this possible with an ODBC connection that can serve as an LDAP server?

Aside from the obvious security implications of such a process, I'd have to say that I have never heard of this approach. if you get it to work, let us know.

FileMaker Server can support External Server Authentication with Open Directory or Active Directory for hosted file. That is a well-documented process and there are several White Papers that discuss this process.

Joomla with mySQL or did you build J! on top of FM as backend? maybe Fedora? Not sure how you have this setup....write up more...althouhg it looks like a wall ahead.

Robin, were you ever able to get Joomla to access your filemaker pro database?

Hi, no I haven't been able to get it to an LDAP, however, I've been using Joomla with LDAP before so I just need to be able to get users in an LDAP database! Let me know if you have any solutions please!
