LDAP protocol option [LDAP]

Allows clients to find database servers without specifying the IP address.

Usage

TCP/IP

Values

YES, NO, or filename

Default

YES

The default file name is saldap.ini.

Remarks

Having the database server register itself with an LDAP server allows clients to query the LDAP server. This allows clients running over a WAN or through a firewall to find servers without specifying the IP address. It also allows the Locate utility (dblocate) to find such servers.

Specifying LDAP=filename turns LDAP support on and uses the specified file as the configuration file. Specifying LDAP=YES turns LDAP support on and uses saldap.ini as the configuration file.

You can hide the contents of the saldap.ini file with simple encryption using the File Hiding utility. See Hiding the contents of .ini files.

LDAP is only used with TCP/IP.
