LDAPBook is our 2nd generation FreeLDAP.org tool. We took what we learned from FreeLDAP.org service and applied it to our new LDAPBook tool that is now accessible over at Entic.net.
Your LDAP client can query any one of these LDAPBook servers. Pick one closest to you for fastest performance.
All servers accept SSL (port 636) connections.
Unfortunately, most of the mail clients only allow searching and not Browsing. Browsing allows for listing all your contacts from the LDAP server when the Address Book is opened. Instead, these clients only allow Searching of contacts.
|Mac OS AB||Yes||No|
*Thunderbird has an extension called Contacts Sidebar that allows Browsing.
Here are generic instructions for configuring your LDAP client (address book) to connect to our LDAP server.
Replace <username> with your own user name, e.g.: uid=surf, ou=People, o=entic.net. You can find specific instructions below.
Here are some VoIP (hard and soft) phones that support LDAP protocol. Please note: We have not tested these and you should be sure they work before plunging ahead and purchasing them for use with our LDAPBook. You'll of course need a SIP provider for this.
Here are bugs/enhancement requests with the LDAP features in their respective clients. Please “vote” for these bugs to get your voice heard!
