Re: LDAP Utilities and LDAP URI

Thanks for the clarification! Further:

True, the manual says "Specify URI(s) referring to the ldap server(s)."

True also, I'm making up things I'd like it to be. RFC 1558 describes a representation of an LDAP search as an LDAP URL. As a self-identified clueby, do I need permission to make this a wish-list item? One hand, it shouldn't be hard to parse "-H" argument into base and filter. Other hand, I can't at this point volunteer to do it.

Thanks agian,

URI vs. URL. Got it ... Thanks guys!

Just a nit, but all URLs, by definition, are URIs. But not all URIs are URLs. Some may be URNs. However, in practice (and often in technical specifications), the distinction doesn't matter too much. It certainly doesn't matter to this discussion.

An LDAP URLs can be used to represent two things:
        1) a search request (location of a set of entries)
        2) location of a LDAP server

In the context of -H (or in ldap.conf), it's being used
only to represent location of an LDAP server.
