Global Address Book
I've got authentication based on LDAP working and I've got SSL/TLS
Thing is that there are two major things that LDAP is used for and the
other is as a global directory service.
I would feel like I was missing out if I didn't try both. ;-) I've not
had much luck so far in getting this to fly.
Gimme a hand with this and I'll see that it goes into the FAQ-O-Matic.
It doesn't currently seem to be there.
Browseing in GQ shows that I have the following basic structure:
Note that the proxy user is not currently in use. I am doing things over
TLS/SSL and using anonymous binds.
I haven't disallowed cleartext communications yet though, because I am
My slapd.conf has the following schema arrangement:
/etc/openldap/schema/local.schema is currently empty.
So far I've created an ldif from a fake user in my Mozilla Address book.
I did this so that I could view the exported ldif which looks like this:
dn: cn=John Test, firstname.lastname@example.org
cn: John Test

... and so the question is "Where do I go from here?"
I obviously need to insert the information but where is a good place and
how should I go about doing it?
I could put it under "dc=microverse,dc=net" I've also considered putting
it under the user information so that
each user could have his or her own individual address book. I could
also create a new top level entry
called "dc=Addressbook" or something. If it is just a matter of
preference then I still could use a clue
as to how to go about doing this insertion.
