-- My configuration file has the following contents:
-- {a-uth_method, ldap}.
-- {ldap_servers, ["LDAP_server_IP"]}. % List of LDAP servers
-- {ldap_uidattr, "uid"}. % LDAP attribute that holds user ID
-- {ldap_base, "o=empleados,o=juntadeandalucia,c=es"}. % Base of LDAP directory
-- {ldap_rootdn, "cn=jsanchez,o=juntadeandalucia,c=es"}.
-- {ldap_password, "jsanchez-password"}.
-- isn't there an attribute called "ldap_passattr" or something like that?
-- How does it run? How can I see a log or something like that where I
-- can see the interaction with LDAP (in ejabberd.log I don't see
-- anything related to this)

I've read that "the client doesn't send the password in  Plain Text",
but what does it means? My LDAP user (jsanchez) which is the one I use
to log with ejabberd has "clear password" should I change it?
Must I use crypted password?
I set up the LDAP attribute that holds user ID but what about  the
attribute that holds the user Password? isn't it configurable?

Is there any guide to set up this correctly? don't know how to do this!

Thanks a lot!
