I'm trying to configure a doveadm service that will proxy trough our
directors, following the recipie at:


So on the backends I have:

	service doveadm {
  		inet_listener {
    			port = 24245
    			address = *
	doveadm_proxy_port = 24245
	local {
  		doveadm_password = suPerSeecret

I assume the "local" line is supposed to point at my local network..?

On the directors I have the same, plus:

	protocol doveadm {
  		auth_socket_path = director-userdb

When testing "doveadm quota" on the directors, it complained
quota plugin not being loaded, so I added:


Then it complained about "doveadm_password not set, can't authenticate",
so I added:

	doveadm_password = suPerSeecret

in the main section. Now I get trough to my backend servers, but they
complain about:

	dovecot::  doveadm: Error: doveadm client attempted non-PLAIN authentication

Any ideas for what that might be? This is with dovecot v2.0.14.
