Novell iPrint for Linux Open Enterprise Server 2


Secure iPrint authentication will fail with the following message if users log in with an alias user:

Printer authentication failed. Do you want to try again?


Configure the iPrint Apache authentication module to derefence alias objects. Follow these step:

1. Modify the iPrint server's /etc/opt/novell/iprint/httpd/conf/iprint_ssl.conf to include this statement:

AuthLDAPDNDereferenceAliases never

For an example of where to include this statement within the file:

AuthLDAPDNRemoteUserIsDN on
AuthzLDAPDNAuthoritative Off
AuthLDAPDNAllowDNAuth on
AuthLDAPDNDereferenceAliases never

2. Save the change and restart Apache:
rcapache2 restart
