Web authentication very slow - solution found ! Thomas C Lyngesen 26.Nov.03 03:25 AM a Web browser Sametime Administration 3.0Windows NT/2000
Searching high and low in server documents, sametime settings etc. and I finally found out why the authentication was so slow.
The Domino server, on which the Sametime server is running had the following setting:
In the configurations document, under Ports - Internet Ports - Directory the LDAP port 389 was set to enabled. I set it disabled, and all of a sudden web authentication speed picked up. I don't know why it was set to enabled (is this default ?). The LDAP task was not running on the server, so I figure that Domino was sending requests to the "local" LDAP server, and after timing out, finally went to the LDAP server specified in the Directory Assistance DB.
