Hello Bruce and all others,
during the presentation of Nettalk on ClarionLive I got caught by a remark, that LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is supported and can be used can be used for automated Log-In to a program.
Because I am not really sure about what LDAP is, I thought I'd better ask, as I expect to need some changes in my data for this.
Right now I offer two options to start and run my program:
1) no log-in needed (the program takes the IP-Address and MAV to identify the machine for filtering the data
2) Log-In with a username and password. These UN and PW are maintained by the Admin in a separate Admin-program and stored in a table, against that the client will check the credentials.
For this first version of our program I am on Nettalk 9.30, but will migrate to Nettalk 10 during the next months, when I write the first update for it.
My question now is: What do I have to prepare in my recent data-structure before rolling the program out into the wild, so that I can start implementing LDAP next year? I want to avoid any strutural change of existing tables. Adding a new table, if necessary, seems okay to me, though, as I would not expect trouble from that.
I looked athttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightweight_Directory_Access_Protocolhttps://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LDAP_authentication
but I didn't got any clue from it.
Thanks in advance
