Re: Fundamental question on LDAP

Dear Masarati,

If I went against LDAP list charter, I really would like to say "Very sorry". I will not publish this kind of content to this list any more.

As this Open LDAP mailling list has helped me to understand LDAP, I am still feeling thanks to this mailing list.
Also, I am trying to find new application area of LDAP sincerely.

I am novice on LDAP.
It would be appreciated if you can give any answer for my question personally.
