   LDAP and Outlook Directory settings

Question 

How do I view the contents of my CommuniGate Pro Directory (LDAP) with an Outlook Address book?

Answer 

Okay, so here are the steps used to get LDAP and Outlook playing nice.

Step 1) First, set the CommuniGate Pro Directory Access Rights

In CommuniGate Pro, the proper LDAP access rights are these
[WebAdmin->Directory->Access Rights]:

Name       Target    Bind DN    Type
-------------------------------------------------
HidePass   *         *          Prohibit   [Edit]
ReadAll    *         brother    Allow      [Edit]
SearchAll  *         child      Allow      [Edit]

Edit:
HidePass:
Attribute Reading: userPassword,privateKey
Attribute Searching: userPassword,privateKey

ReadAll:
Attribute Reading: *
Attribute Searching: *

SearchAll:
Attribute Reading: *
Attribute Searching: *

Step 2) Retrieve your Domain's Search Base DN:

[WebAdmin->Directory->Browser]

* If using an RDN or o= (such as "o=My Company", select this at the
bottom). The o= value can be set in Users->Directory Integration
* Select the dc= for your domain hierarchy (such as "dc=com")
* Select your dc= domain (such as "dc=example")
* Select your ou= unit (such as "ou=people")
* You should now have a "Distinguished Name" field which lists your
exact search base. Copy this, for example:

ou=people,dc=example,dc=com,o=my company

Step 3) Create your Outlook LDAP Directory

* In Outlook, go to Tools->E-mail Accounts
* Select "Add a new directory or address book"
* Select Internet Directory Service (LDAP)
* Enter the Server Information, for example:
    Server Name: mail.example.com
    Logon Information:
    [x] This server requires me to log on
          User Name: janeuser
          Password:  mypassword
* Select "More Settings"
  On Connection Tab:
    (Recommended:)
        Port: 636
        Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL): [x]
  On Search Tab:
    Enter the Search Base DN from Step 2 above:
    Search base: ou=people,dc=example,dc=com,o=my company


Step 4) Outlook will probably make you restart it now

Step 5) After this, if you select a new message, then select the address
book buttons (To: or Cc), now select:

Show Names from the: mail.example.com (Server Name as used in Step 3 above)

Then under "Advanced" select "Find" to be able to search the LDAP
directory for the appropriate account.
