From that web-site I choose the first hyperlink (Auburn University),

I try to get all e-mail addresses (the ldap "mail" attribute) of persons
who's name start with the letters 'z0':
ldapsearch -x -H "ldap://donald.duc.auburn.edu:389" \
-b "o=Auburn University,c=US" '(cn=zo*)'
This outputs the following error:
ldap_bind: Protocol error (2)
additional info: version not supported
So, this server only support the LDAP-protocol Version-2. So I add the
"-P 2" option to the commandline:
shell$ ldapsearch -x -H "ldap://donald.duc.auburn.edu:389" \
-b "o=Auburn University,c=US" -P 2 '(cn=zo*)' mail
