Re: graphical LDAP client

ldapAdmin on sourceforge.net.

If you feel like trying it out, I have started to create a simple
ldapAdmin PHP program on sourceforge.net.  It is meant to be useful for
my own company and the LDIF structure that we have created.  It
currently does simply things such as Add Users (with very common
fields), Modify those users, delete users, and allow users to change
their own passwords based on who logs into the program (ACL's are
important here).  This program has recently started and I am in the
process of getting it to work for my company here.  I have tried to
create it with dynamic variables in mind.  Therefore, you can edit a
couple config files and it may work for you.

Since I have not released any files for this yet, you will have to grab
it out of CVS.  And if you are having problems, you can post to the
email list or forum section.

like I said, it is really just a project that I am working on for my own
company and I have tried to design it to allow other copmanies to use
this.  It currently only does things for users.  Plans for Groups, Email
Aliases, and Hosts are in the works....

just thought I'd let ya know.
