Thank you for your questions:
1) LDAP can be used regardless of whether the Netware client is installed. Specify the protocol to use (NDAP or LDAP) in the Formativ Control Panel applet.
2) This is an area that requires better documentation. The LDAP support in Formativ is LDAP 3 complient, and all parameters follow that standard.
b) This depends on your server configuration. LDAP URLs provide a uniform method to access information on an LDAP server. Defined in RFC 2255, LDAP URLs begin with the prefix ldap:// or ldaps://. The following provides the syntax and descriptions of an LDAP URL.
The lowest common denominator which works is the IP address of the server.
c) Certificate is the full name and path of the certificate file on the local PC. You may specify either Base 64 (B64) or DER certificates. The certificate can reside anywhere, as long as the client has acess to it on startup.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you require any further assistance.
