can't connect crowd to ldap


in crowd, i pressed 'add directory'

i defined the connector, tested it and it worked.

i then defined the configuration, set the timeout to be very long and clicked 'test'

nothing happens for a while and then a blank page loads in the browser with the url:


the logs only have one line in them:

2012-08-08 18:20:42,995 http-8095-5 WARN com.opensymphony.xwork.DefaultActionInvocation No result defined for action and result input

i did tcpdump on port 389, and there is definetly activity there.

Hi Gregory,

Good to know that the problem is solved now. If you experience any other problem please feel free to raise a support ticket at our and we will be glad to help you.



what solved the problem for me was downgrading from crowd 2.5 to 2.4.1

I'm having exactly the same issue. I've enabled debug logging and I see a timeout:
