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 database servers without specifying the IP address. It also allows the Locate
utility (dblocate) to find such servers.
Unless a full path is specified with the LDAP protocol option, the saldap.ini file must be located in the same directory as the SQL Anywhere executables (for example, %SQLANY16%\bin32 on Windows).
You can hide the contents of the saldap.ini file with simple encryption using the File Hiding utility.
Using LDAP as a name server is only supported for TCP/IP server communication.
