The E-mail Login application developed using Novell's JavaBeans allows you to login into NDS using your e-mail ID and NDS password. As this is a Java application, it is platform independent. The download includes all files required for Windows/UNIX platforms. We've included the readme text from this nifty utility for your reading pleasure. Click here to get the tool itself.

Make sure that you have at least one e-mail ID configured in the "Internet E-mail Address" field in NDS before using the application.

System requirements

  • Netscape's Java LDAP JDK (ldapjdk.jar)
  • NWIDirQuery Bean (NWIDirQuery.jar)
  • jdk1.1.7 or higher version. (For jdk1.1.7, you will need the swing.jar file).

Installing and Using the Application

For UNIX

  1. Unzip and untar the downloaded file, "Login.tar.gz" to any directory.
  2. Run the commands, >> gunzip Login.tar.gz and >> tar -xvf Login.tar from the directory where the files were copied.

    A directory named "LoginSample" will be created in the current working directory.

  3. From the LoginSample directory, run the command >> ./startsample to initialize the application.
  4. Specify the e-mail ID, the NDS password, the server (format can be only the "serverName" or "ldap://serverName") to which authentication is required and the context (example format o=novell).
  5. Click Login.

For Windows

  1. Unzip the downloaded file, "Login.tar.gz" to any directory.
  2. From the directory containing the unzipped files, open run.bat file in a text editor such as Notepad.
  3. If the default JDKPATH environment variable in the file is not applicable, set it by specifying the correct directory path for jdk. (Example: set JDKPATH=e:\jdk1.2.2)
  4. Save the run.bat file and double click the file to initialize the application.

    or

    Use the run command from the Command Prompt. (example: \LoginSample\run)

  5. Specify the e-mail ID, the NDS password, the server to which authentication is required (the format can either be only the "serverName" or "ldap://serverName"), and the context (the format is o=novell).
  6. Click Login.
