Authentication to external servers

Predefined Java synchronization scripts are included with MobiLink that make it simpler for you to authenticate to external servers using the authenticate_user event. Predefined scripts are available for the following authentication servers:

  • POP3 or IMAP servers using the JavaMail 1.2 API

  • LDAP servers using the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI)

How you use these scripts is determined by whether your MobiLink user names map directly to the user IDs in your external authentication system.


You can also set up authentication to external servers in Sybase Central, using the Authentication tab. See MobiLink plug-in for Sybase Central.

 If your MobiLink user names map directly to your user IDs
 If your MobiLink user names do not map directly to your user IDs
