Re: Synchronizing a NT4 PDC with OpenLDAP

i am interested on working such a project. i have some ideas about nt sync. first
of all you don't need to write a dll to hanle password changes. you know
microsoft anonsed ADSI . you can access nt 4.0 PDC's users information using adsi
sdk (e.g; using perl).
i suggest to use java as developing environment for this project. do you
interested developing sync. tool between database and ldap.
best regards
