Browse an existing LDAP Server

Before setting up we take a tour on Apache Directory Studio:

  • Setup Apache Directory Studio to anonymously connect to ldap1.mi.hdm-stuttgart.de using TLS.

  • Browse the DIT.

  • Find your own entry beneath ou=userlist by using a filter (uid=xy234). Use the corresponding DN to reconnect using password authentication. Then browse your own entry again. Can you spot any difference?

  • Use the ldapsearch utility and find your own entry by using the command line.
