How I can install this interface?
There is none provided in the OpenLDAP distribution. Various 3rd parties
provide them, e.g.
But IMO, DSML and all uses of XML as network protocol mechanisms are
abominations. It's obvious that XML was a security breach waiting to happen.
The "ML" stands for Markup Language. A Markup Language is designed to augment
plaintext for display to humans. It is not suitable for use as a database
format, network transport protocol, or any of the many other "innovative" uses
that have been attempted with it. Only a moron (or someone with a vested
interest in selling more memory, newer CPUs, and newer network switches) would
promote its use.
