 +====== LDAPBook ======
 +
 +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 [[http://​entic.net/​LDAPBook|Entic.net]].
 +
 +====== Server List ======
 +
 +Your LDAP client can query any one of these LDAPBook servers. Pick one closest to you for fastest performance.
 +
 +  * ds1-sjc.entic.net
 +  * ds1-lhr.entic.net (offline for now)
 +
 +All servers accept SSL (port 636) connections.
 +
 +====== Client Comparison ======
 +
 +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.
 +
 +^ Client ​        ^ LDAP support ​        ^ Browsing ^
 +| Thunderbird ​   | Yes     | No<​sup>​*</​sup> ​       |
 +| Evolution ​   | Yes     | Yes        |
 +| Mac OS AB    | Yes     | No        |
 +| Outlook Express ​   | Yes     | No        |
 +| Outlook ​   | Yes     | No        |
 +
 +
 +<​sup>​*</​sup>​Thunderbird has an extension called [[http://​jpeters.no-ip.com/​extensions/​index.php?​page=tb_cs|Contacts Sidebar]] that allows Browsing.
 +
 +====== Client Configuration ======
 +
 +Here are generic instructions for configuring your LDAP client (address book) to connect to our LDAP server.
 +
 +  * Ensure the Bind and Base/Search DN are: **uid=<​username>,​ ou=People, o=entic.net**
 +  * SSL is selected, port 636
 +  * Host or server name should be one of the above
 +
 +Replace <​username>​ with your own user name, e.g.: uid=surf, ou=People, o=entic.net. You can find specific instructions below.
 +
 +===== Clients =====
