Re: LDAP client question .

LDAP, like DAP, is a protocol for accessing an X.500 directory.
A standalone server, such as slapd, still must act in accordance
with X.500 (but isn't required to support DAP [X.511]).

Anyways, ud(1) is kind of a funky client.  I generally suggest
you toy with ldap*(1) tools to get the hang of things.  Otherwise,
look in the FAQ for a list of numerous other clients.
