Can someone please tell me why it would be beneficial to use LDAP for authentication rather than some sort of database mechanism? Cheers, David.

Hi there David, Well as u know that LDAP is ligtweight in the sense that it uses a protocol that is better than the TCP or the HTTP that u use normally to communicate with the relational databse. I have personally used the NDS and find the directory model of organising the users better, cleaner and more efficient. For more information Please go to: http://www.stanford.edu/%7Ehodges/talks/EMA98-DirectoryServicesRollout/Steve_Kille/sld001.htm and i guess u will get all u'r answers there... HTH Sahil
