port 135 is NETBIOS (http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/N/NetBIOS.html)

If you can extract data from Exchange into .CSV it's very easy to make a
LDIF-file from the .CSV-file. You can either use tools like
http://www.oss.billiton.de/software.shtml or it's just as quick writing
a small python- or perl-script.

Try searching google.com and freshmeat.net for more tools. As long as
you have a text-file with a field-separator - it's ususually no big
