Accented characters in squid proxy server ldap authentification



  • Hi guys !

    Accent characters is not supported in LDAP connection string for Squid proxy server. Is there any workaround ?

    Thank you.

  • I found a solution, here is what I did :

    viconfig, find the line ldap_user in <squidauth>type the letter with the accent. Now I can see the accented character in web configurator". I still cannot save, I think there is some kind of bug with accented characters with the proxy server LDAP authentication form in the web configurator.

    By way, to test the ldap connection from the shell /usr/pbi/squid-amd64/libexec/squid/squid_ldap_auth …. I had to create three missing symbolic link :

    ln -s /usr/pbi/squid-amd64/local/lib/libmd5.so.1 /usr/lib/libmd5.so.1
    ln -s /usr/pbi/squid-amd64/local/lib/liblber-2.4.so.8 /usr/lib/liblber-2.4.so.8
    ln -s /usr/pbi/squid-amd64/local/lib/libldap-2.4.so.8 /usr/lib/libldap-2.4.so.8
