Yes, I know that those methods behave differently - as I have read in
the docs, I just search for the simplest alternative as possible for
ldap_simple_bind, since I have seen that the ldap_simple_bind methods
Nevertheless ldap_sasl_bind_s returns LDAP_SASL_BIND_IN_PROGRESS which
I understand as a challenge which should be returned back to the
server. This one seems to had a similiar issue: http://bit.ly/awT4D4
But I think I have to look at the examples for better understanding -
thx for the tip!
ldap_sasl_bind_s() can be used, passing LDAP_SASL_SIMPLE, in lieu of
ldap_simple_bind_s(). ldap_sasl_interactive_bind_s(), only need to be
used for those methods that require multiple steps;
LDAP_SASL_BIND_IN_PROGRESS indicates that a further step is expected,
which never happens when performing a simple bind. See the code snippet
in slap_client_connect(), in servers/slapd/config.c for a complete example
of how both functions can be used in the most complete form.
