I know the clients are rather easy, it is setting up the server that I
found somewhat difficult. I did go through the howto's, used the RH
packages. Had some issues I could not find resolution to. This was
about a year ago.
I have a nice LDAP server set up with a completely read-only database
now. I haven't been able to convince it to let clients write (e.g.
password and other changes). Not sure what I am doing wrong, relatively
sure it is pilot error.
