I noticed (and please correct me if i�m wrong) that the only way to validate a user login against a LDAP service is using the user and password provided in the login page to connect to LDAP service and search inside for some attributes.

I�m now trying to configure jforum to work in a different scenario, where i have an unique user/pass to access the ldap server and the user/pass provided in the login page must be searched in the LDAP directory.

the class that do the work is LDAPAuthenticator and the method is the following:

Does anyone have an implementation of what i want to do? If I do it, would you like to include it to improve Jforum?

Any comments?
