Hi Zad,

Thanks for your response.

>What do you mean by pass-through:

By pass-through, I meant that the actual password MAY not stored in LDAP, 
but rather somewhere else (like an NT Domain server, for example). So, the 
directory server first checks to see if there is a password in the directory 
and if not, then it calls the NT server to look up the username/password 
combination. The NT server then returns to the directory server with success 
or failure.

Does this help clarify things?

Any thoughts on this one below?
