Sorry for pesting you with stupid questions...
How would you rate the security, setting owncloud on https only and
using ldaps to connect to tjener.intern (owncloud server and tjener.intern
would sit in the same room, tjener on a 10.*.*.* network and owncloud
on a public IP; comunication between then shouldn't leave the internal
P.S: I got the login. LDAPS is needed, but also setting manually
the LDAP user tree position (since we have the ou=Teachers and ou=Students
in the paths)
