We completely dumped the Linux server, started from scratch, installed all updates, installed eDir, added the server to the tree. No problems, can see the new server in ConsoleOne. Go to install ZFD and we cannot authenticate. Simply says: Warning, unable to authenticate the entered user to the tree.
The example it gives is (admin.context), we've tried every combination of authentication imaginable.
This is getting ridiculous, I wish someone could help.
