Problems setting up LDAP

David Busby-2
Have been trying to setup ldap search address book in Thunderbird and I
am getting no response.

Our LDAP server does not require a secure bind to search.

Hi, David. What OS is your LDAP server running? For NetWare, there are
some tweaks which may be necessary. Do you know if the server is LDAP 2
or LDAP 3? Is it running on port 636 (unsecure)? (You mention that it
doesn't require secure binds, so I'm assuming you're not connection over
port 389 via ssl.

I finally got it to work sort of.  If I type in the ken for example it
finds all occurrences of "Ken"  But if you type in "ken smith" or the
persons alias it will find nothing.  We typically only access our ldap
with a non-authenticated bind on port 389 for searching.

Maybe I need to add information to the search filters?

Hmmm... I'll need to look at this a bit more closely on my own NetWare
LDAP install (only one I have handy). I'll post back when I get a chance
to play with a couple things. BTW, I'm assuming that other LDAP clients
are able to get results with full names and aliases, but not Mozilla.

Yes

I think we are using iplanet.
I think it needs to be searching the common names but not sure how to
set that.  We do use this feature in other mail clients like outlook and
  eudora.

Sorry for the late follow-up (I'm in Provo, at Novell's ATT Live
training event this week, and short on time). What do your LDAP setting
s,ook like in TB, David, specifically, the advanced settings including
the subtree radio button and the filter criteria.

A couple links for you:
