Hi: So, I finally decided to get OpenLDAP set up to serve an address book independent of where I am and on what computer. The problem is that unless an attribute value is ascii, values have to be in UTF-8 and base64 encoded(?), as I could understand from googling.
But, I can't even spell my own name in that encoding! So question is: How do I most easily populate my directory? Is there a tool that can convert an iso-8859-1 ldif to utf-8+base64 ldif? Will ldap queries also have to be encoded UTF-8+base64 as well? Have I misunderstood the bit about base64, that this is only required for binary data such as jpeg images? All documentation I have found tells how easy it is to get data out in UTF-8 ldif, but I really need to get the data in there first.
