I would like to get LDAP to connect to my OD master which is a Snow Leopard Open Directory Master. I use moodle and other LDAP services with OD but I cannot get the same type of settings to work with FreeNAS. Some of the guides I have found require you to login via SSH. I have ssh enabled and configured for root access but when I try to connect to the FreeNAS box I get a connection refused. My goal is to setup FreeNAS as a backup share for Time Machine. I would like to create mobile users but disable home synching. This allows me to have a local user tied to the OD. I can then use TIme Machine on the client to backup the software to the freenas home folder. I have successfully connected to the AFP share on FreeNAS with a local user account on the nas box since ldap does not work. I was able to run a Time Machine backup. I was not able to use WorkGroup Manager and create a home folder pointing to the NAS box. Not sure if that is possible or not. If I went to a true local account on the macbook clients then I lose the ability to keep their logins tied to OD. Anyway, back to the original question: lol I need to get SSH to work on the freenas and then get ldap to work.
