Pop3 server dies when ldap server running

  1. Anyone got a quick solution to this problem?

    Do I even want ldap? Why is it such a mission to set up?
    What's it really good for, that isnt accomplished simpler without it?

  2. You should first learn how to use newsgroups before actually posting. This
    is not an helpdesk for braindamaged people.

    You are supposed to search a minimum on your own before crying for help. You
    also should show some respect for people if you actually expect some help
    from them.

    In other words, return where you come from, there is nothing for you here.

    wow! That's a bit harsh.

    To the OP, LDAP is a protocol for accessing a specific type of directory
    - useful kind of database where you generally need to do lots of read
    and infrequent write/update.

    Bring down the ldap server and see what happens. In all likelihood, you
    are not using it. If you find that an application is not working, turn
    in on again and from that you can deduce whether the application needs
    it or not (or read the application documentation!).

    Why pop3 dies when ldap is running? - don't know. Maybe your pop3 server
    is configured to access an ldap server (which itself is not configured
    correctly then pop3 just gives up ... maybe, maybe not).

  4. Thanks G...

    Yes my pop3 is configured 2 use ldap, I read some howtos and did some
    configuring of ldap, but apparently theres too much detail than i can
    afford to look at.

    So, my pop3 works when it can't access ldap.

    When it can however, it doesn't let anyone in, and the stupid pop3 just
    hangs with no reply.

    The logs... Hmm, cant remember what it says, my log file is so full of
    messages, I think the day I've got it all waxed, I'll take a month long
    vacation and post.

    Long story short, LDAP isnt worth the hassle if you dont have a week of
    your precious time to devote to it.

  5. soz, let me mention this. I spent about 6 hours reading howtos,
    searching about LDAP, configuring it. *sigh*
    I'll show my respect when you come up with a simple answer.
    Low self esteem there... "nothing". Hello "nothing".

    OOh, spasm.

    Cant keep it in!!!

    I suppose I am *braindamaged*, probably all these X-RAYS coming from
    this ancient CRT, or maybe all the hassles from our TELECOMS MONOPOLY.
    Or maybe all the drugs I was fed when I had the EBSTEIN BARR virus, or
    HAPATITIS B. Why dont you ASSASINATE ME if you can't find anything
    better to do, like say, ignoring my posts if you dont have an answer? or
    posting a quick reply if something pops to mind? Or [email protected]#*[email protected](# my [email protected]#$ you
    [email protected]#[email protected]#4 @!#[email protected]#$ @#$%@#$ @!#$. Get a life. ... I know I dont have one,
    all thanks to the wonderful simplicity of this [email protected]#($*[email protected](#$ [email protected](#$* [email protected](
    'technology' we have to put up with.

    French 'don't work enough'
    28/04/2005 22:18 - (SA)

    Paris - Most French believe they don't work enough, and four in five who
    have jobs consider their work a source of fulfilment, a poll released on
    Thursday shows.

    The poll, conducted for regional newspapers, comes as many in France are
    grumbling over a new law that scraps one national holiday a year to help
    fund better health care for the elderly.

    Fifty-six percent of poll respondents said they think the French don't
    work enough, and 28% said believe they work too much. Ten percent said
    they work the right amount; 6% had no opinion.

    Among the respondents who have jobs, four in five said that they
    considered their work "to be a factor of fulfilment", according to the poll.

    The government passed a law last year to scrap a national holiday, with
    tax receipts from the new workday earmarked for better health care for
    the elderly - the main victims of France's summer heat wave in 2003 that
    left nearly 15 000 dead.
