What do you mean exactly?
Are you talking about LDAPv3 proxy authorization
If yes, then pass an instance of class ldap.controls.simple.ProxyAuthzControl
to the LDAPObject methods when sending your LDAP requests. This is usable no
matter how your proxy user has bound the directory. Another option is to send
a SASL authz-ID along with the initial SASL bind request of your proxy user.
No matter what you have to get your LDAP server configuration right for this
to work. Which LDAP server is it?

AFAICS this web page talks about the proxy user for eDirectory's LDAP gateway
to NDS. It's unlikely that this is relevant to your needs.

Hmm, please don't take it personally but my impression is that you're not
totally clear on what you need. Could you please try to explain what you want
