Re: Using OpenLDAP as a Corportae Adressbook with Netscape

Perhaps this is not the best forum to ask.  One of Netscape's newsgroup
might be better.  But....

Netscape's address book is able to query LDAP-based resources.  It is _not_
able to add or update entries, to my knowledge.  At least there appears to
be no way even in Communicator 4.5.

On my intranet, I have created a Web-based frontend for this, to allow
people to do things like this.  Obviously this is browser based, not address
book based.
