Fredy, I quickly tried to check for some documentation on how to configure this stuff, but found only useless superficial guides on how to find the pointy/clicky buttons to push to enable the service. I am not a Mac expert by a long shot so I cannot help you much here. Is there any guide available on how to use this service with other LDAP servers, like openLDAP or Active Directory ? We can probably draw some conclusions from there.
