[Rt-devel] RT-Authen-ExternalAuth custom LDAP port

I have the RT-Authen-ExternalAuth module running nicely on our RT server
and am using LDAP for all authentication, but I've run into a little
problem I was hoping someone could shed some light on.  I need to
authenticate users in a separate domain in the same AD forest, and I
found using ldapsearch that using port 3268 (Microsoft's Global Catalog
port) is the only way the ldapsearch will query the other domain (there
was a problem with not following ldap referrals).  However, using
RT-Authen-ExternalAuth I could not find any record of a variable that
will let you designate the ldap port, and when I try to modify the
LdapServer variable from: Set($LdapServer, 'ldap.test.com') to:
Set($LdapServer, 'ldap.test.com:3268') authentication fails for both

Does anyone know how I could go about modifying this?  If all else fails
I'm going to try using apache's ldap module for authentication and
change the ldap port there, but I'd rather stick with the RT solution.

Thanks for any input!
