LDAP authentication

So I have LDAP authentication setup on my network, but not sure how to get IRIX to use it.

Is there a tutorial somewhere for 6.5.30? Or can someone point me in the right direction?

I set it up on my Octane

Things to keep in mind: You will need to have a local slave ldap server (openldap) if you want to use tls, and you cannot use clogin with pam (you're stuck with the ugly xdm login or something third-party).

I suspect changing passwords (EXOP) won't work, but I don't remember much about that, I might just not have bothered.

Hmm :( That's not ideal. But I saw some posts about that. What about using stunnel?

Sure, that'll work.
