Re: Adding entries

Thanks for that, soon after I sent this message I started looking at those
files and figures out what I needed.

I do have another question. Since I added this entry, I then tested Outlook
by typing the persons name in the To: it doesn't seem to find the name. I
have made sure the entry is in the database using ldapsearch and it is

 Outlook is set up with localserver.com as the directory service. and in the
advanced tab I have put "dc=localserver,dc=com" in the search base section.

I am wondering if it is to do with the port as my ldap.conf has all of its
line remmed out.
