Description of problem:
See web page above for a better description.
Problem diagnosed with ethereal packet sniffer.
When attempting to access an LDAP server which requires User ID/Password,
Netscape propts for these values but attempts to bind with NULL for both
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Confihgure OpenLDAP server. See:
2. Add security requiring login. See:
3.Attempt to bind to LDAP server. See:
Actual Results: Fails to bind to LDAP server.
Expected Results: Expect to bind to LDAP server with UserID/password.
Problem is with Netscape 4.77 which binds using NULL (anonymous). User ID
and PAssword are not sent. I verified with Ethereal packet sniffer.
Please report this to netscape at:
We don't have the source code for netscape; we can't fix it.

is there a workaround for this bug ?
did you resolve ?
Please reread comment #1 - there is nothing RH can do. Note that there really is
no reason to be using the netscape browser these days.
