Hi Olivier, There are a few good books about LDAP out there, but most of them are quite old unfortunately. Anyhow, I found that reading "LDAP System Administration" by Gerald Carter from O'Reilly was a good help in understanding LDAP, deploying OpenLDAP and configuring applications to fetch data from the LDAP directory (i.e. sendmail, replace NIS, PAM, FTP, Apache, DNS, etc). Get more info at http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/ldapsa/index.html For a more in depth look into LDAP itself, get your hands on "Understanding and Deploying LDAP Directory Services" by Timothy A. Howes & al. from Addison-Wesley. Again, it's rather old, but will still help your understanding of LDAP quite a lot. Check it out on Amazon at http://www.amazon.ca/Understanding-Deploying-LDAP-Directory-Services/dp/0672323168/ref=wl_itt_dp/702-7398595-5616835?ie=UTF8&coliid=IDX1KGHZ13UXH&colid=CWBQ1L7F8P6P Next is the "Oracle Internet Directory Administrator's Guide" document which covers LDAP very well, just don't read the Oracle specific stuff if you're not interested. You can reach this doc for free at http://download-east.oracle.com/docs/cd/B14099_11/idmanage.1012/b14082/toc.htm Finally, for a more OpenLDAP centric book, look for "OpenLDAP by Example: Practical Exercises in LDAP Directory Deployment" by John H. Terpstra & Benjamin Coles from Prentice Hall PTR. Contrary to the other books, this one is not yet published (as you can see from http://www.amazon.ca/OpenLDAP-Example-Practical-Exercises-Deployment/dp/0131488732/ref=wl_itt_dp/702-7398595-5616835?ie=UTF8&coliid=I1YEUBXAR8YIE3&colid=CWBQ1L7F8P6P ;) Seems quite promising. We'll see Good luck, David -- David Robillard UNIX systems administrator & Oracle DBA CISSP, RHCE & Sun Certified Security Administrator Montreal: +1 514 966 0122 _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
