Clients CQLSH LDAP AuthenticationFailed

Hello,

I have enabled ldap and internal authentication on my cluster but when i tried accessing cassandra outside of cluster node using cqlsh or cassandra-driver with ldap login i get authentication error, but from any of the cluster node it works.

I also tested internal user and that works perfectly both from outside and any of the cluster node.


Does anyone know the reason why???

@francis.ofougwuka_151231 if you're connecting remotely from an open-source Apache Cassandra cqlsh, it won't work since it's a feature that only works with DSE.

Similarly, clusters configured with DSE Unified Authenticator need to use one of the DSE drivers since the advanced security feature will not work with the OSS driver versions. For more information, see DataStax drivers. Cheers!
