We are looking at extending the allowed length of passwords we allow people to
use (the theory being that a short phrase is easier to remember than a

server for authentication to a whole host of online tools, including several
portals, I need to know the max length of the source password when doing a bind.
There are no maximum lengths in LDAP. Limits imposed by other applications
depend on the particular application.
