Seconded. What I'm doing now is known in Engish English as "picking up
fag ends" which means "picking up half smoked cigarette ends", which
means "picking up trails half way through", which is what I'm doing

I don't use Solaris for ldap, but everything you describe and want,
works perfectly for me under Linux.

I have to have "localhost" in the certificates. Some things work if I
have "", others not. "localhost." (note the dot) works in some
cases, some not. "localhost" works perfectly (no dot!).

I have a caching nameserver on a dialup connection. My domain is
billy.demon.nl, which isn't always on line. "localhost" gets translated
by my resolver to "localhost.demon.nl". If I don't have a DNS zone
"localhost.demon.nl" for which my node is authoritative, I have to wait
a   * l o n g *   time for every single thing I do.

So I don't just have the standard BIND zone localhost.zone, but I also
have billy.zone, which makes me authoritative for localhost.demon.nl .

Then there's absolutely no wait.

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
