Subject: [Fedora-directory-users] Problem starting Management Console

 

Ive made a fresh install of FDS 1.0.1 in the machine that I was previsouly testing FDS 7.1.  The setup was ok, the slapd and admin server started.

But when I try to use the Management Console in my Windows machine (which was working ok), appears an error window:

"Cannot logon because an incorrect UserID, incorrect password or Directory problem

HttpException:

Response: HTTP/1.1 401 Autorization required

Status: 401

URL: http://10.15.20.128:4616 /admin-serv/autenthicate"

The admin port (4616), login and password are the ones chosen in setup.

Ive gone through the /opt/fedora-ds/admin-serv/log directory and found that in the "error" file:

[Thu Dec 29 10:52:52 2005] [notice] [client 10.15.20.9] admserv_host_ip_check: ap_get_remote_host could not resolve 10.15.20.9
[Thu Dec 29 10:52:52 2005] [notice] [client 10.15.20.9] admserv_host_ip_check: host [ediser12.celepar.parana.gov.br] did not match pattern [*.pr.gov.br] -will scan aliases
[Thu Dec 29 10:52:52 2005] [notice] [client 10.15.20.9] admserv_host_ip_check: Unauthorized host ip=10.15.20.9, connection rejected

Looks like that the admin server is trying to make a reverse DNS check to allow the access. Ive digged through the .conf files in the /opt/fedora-ds/admin-serv/config to find where to disable it, but no success.

Is this the problem, or there is something else? And how do I solve it?
