NET::LDAP and Rails Session

Does anybody know what the correct way to cache results from
Net::LDAP bind_as? I’ve been struggling for about a day now and I
know it’s something really easy. But when ever I do something like
this -

def self.login(username, password)
ldap = = “”
ldap.port = 389

 result = ldap.bind_as(
   :base => "dc=net",
   :filter => "(cn=#{username})",
   :password => password

 @dn = result.first.dn
 rescue => e


and in my controller I do


   session[:user_id] = AuthUser.login(params[:user]["username"],



My server returns a 500 error. I’ve tried from lighttpd and
locomotive. Both return the same generic error. I suspect it’s
related to the object returned is not compatible with the
marshal_dump. So the question is how do I copy the values from the
result set into my session object? Sorry if this is a stupid noobie
question but I am one so. :slight_smile:

Thanks in advance.
