I have a problem searching with queries containing a ":".
I made a Perlscript wich searches for hosts in my LDAP tree by their
Ethernet-Card-Hardwareaddress (eg 00:56:45:87:98:65). I store this as a
simple octed string in the ldap tree. For my tests there was no problem
entering a sample system with GQ into it (OpenLDAP accepted the value and
I use the Net::LDAP Perl module to access the tree and had no problems till
now but if i try to search for fields wich sotre a such Hardware address (and
i enter a correct filter like: filter => "(myHWaddr=00:56:45:87:98:65)" ) i
get 0 results but there must be some.
I assume that OpenLDAP has problems with the colon (":") because all my other
queries work. So is there a method to have a 100% chance to correct
encapsulate characters wich OpenLDAP interprets as something else?
