Anonymous authentication was disabled when using OID for security reasons.

But it is necessary to place OUD in proxy-mode in front of OID.

After testing, found that it is possible to connect to OID only when anonymous authentication is enabled again.

This is not very secure, but it is a necessary solution where OUD proxy can connect to OID with anonymous binds disabled.
