[xmlblaster] Forcing all clients to authenticate via ldap?


I mentioned this topic a few months back but haven't had time to followe up until 

I need to start having remote locations connect to xmlblaster via tcp/ssl protocol, 
but I want every client to be forced to authenticate.

I am using release 1.3

The last time I tried this setting up authentication, it was possible to send and 
receive messages without the client specifying any securityService. 

What I need is:

1. all connects must have securityService specified (currently it's possible to 
connect w/o specifying SecurityService and so you get some kind of 'guest' 
access which I could not disable)

2. only a valid ldap account can authenticate 

Is there any way in the current release to accomplish these two requirements? I 
see that #2 should work, but I wasn't able to get xmlBlaster to talk to my ldap 

My clients still connected ok, because I could not figure out how to meet 
requirement #1 (ldap required).


Also, I need to setup clustering in the future, and I would like remote xmlBlaster 
instances to also be required to authenticate via ldap. Will that be possible?
