We will be using the OpenLDAP version of ldap. OpenLDAP lives at http://www.openldap.org/.

Since it appears that someone has made a link to this page (unfortunately), I am removing the local link to the LDAP guide from IBM. You can still get it directly from the IBM site.. There is an excellent guide for most of your in depth questions on ldap and its component pieces, although it is just slightly out of date (it was written in 1998). You can also get that file directly from the IBM site.

You might also consider just browsing the booklist of redbooks provided by the IBM team ... or writing one of your own

Philip Brown has some helpful suggestions, especially if you are trying to build this on a cranky solaris machine.

For those of you who were at the meeting about LDAP, where I couldn't answer the question about what the file "struct" was for... If your window is wide enough, it looks just like this.
