I am trying to install the ldap client module in webmin to connect to my AD/ldap server but it says i cannot since i do not have the latest webmin version. any help in the right direction. is there a way i can download a previous version of the module from somewhere.

Thanks for your help on this matter.

Unfortunately that is one of the issues with Webmin. The Webmin module only provides an interface to the functionality and/or application - not the functionality/application itself.

A quick search on using oldstable (Squeeze - what TKL v12.x is based on) as the distro reveals that the package you'll need to install is libnet-ldap-perl so install that like this:

apt-get install libnet-ldap-perl

That should take care of any direct dependancies although you may still have to install other stuff as well...

Hint: As well as using the online package database, you can also search for packages from the commandline like this:

apt-cache search perl

That may return too many results so you can limit them with a second keyword like this:

apt-cache search perl | grep ldap
