  • LDAP help with OX5

    Complete newbie here so go easy on me -
    looking for some information on how to pull the global addressbook into thunderbird client.

    so far i have this -

    Use the global ldap server in account settings in thunderbird

    In Tools - options - composition -

    Select Directory Server - Edit directories
    Select Add -
    name - companyname
    hostname -
    Base DN- dc=companyname,dc=com
    Port 389

    Click Ok

    Go back in to edit - and select tab - Offline and hit the download now

    Verification suceeds.

    Click ok to exit out - ok again and then make sure the drop down box has the name i created selected.

    Click ok - open address book

    I see the ldap book i created - but no information there.

    - now i am stuck -

    how do i verify that my osx server is outputting or allowing the output of the global address book?

    thanks for any help
