So I have to perform a search operation on slapd to get the server
Please clearify this a bit.
What about authorization/bindstrings to view this? What will be

I was thinking about inserting a new project with global object that
track of number of connected clients, ipaddresses etc dynamically do
new client connects I add him to the list etc.

If a client is connected,perhaps performing a search query that an
administrator wish to stop by disconnecting the client at once, can this
done in a easy way?

Would there be problems if I change the configuration at run-time? If
can this be solved?

If anyone has a short, structured list with the exact differences I
appreciate it at lot.
I could read the RFC:s for v2 and v3 and try to compare these but ...
By the way,
how can I use the ldapsearch tool and save the result in a separate file
Should I try the '-T' and '-L' options(write to file + ldif format)?
What would the execution line look like?
Thanks in advance.
