Enter the LDAP attributes in this tab.
|Accessing the LDAP Server||
The LDAP standard requires that all LDAP directories maintain a special entry, called the Root DS Entry, or Root DSE. This entry provides a set of standard operational attributes that the user can read to find out fundamental characteristics of the directory and the server. The Root DSE can also provide any number of vendor-specific attributes.
One of the standard operational attributes is defaultNamingContext. This attribute contains the distinguished name (DN) of the root of the directory. In Windows 2000, this is the DN of the Domain container at the root of the current tree. By reading the defaultNamingContext attribute from the Root DSE, you can discover what domain you are logged in to at run time. When you press the Test button, the domain you are logged into is displayed.
It is important to note that if the root is left blank when you press the Test button, the results may differ from when you actually run the server with QuickCapture component (equipped with Authentication). A blank root uses the default value, which is retrieved from the account that you are logged into the machine as. However, when you run the server, you are logged in as LocalSystem (or whichever user name you specify on the Service tab), possibly yielding different results. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you either supply the root or log-in to the service with a user name/password different than LocalSystem.

|Searching the Database||
Select from the following options to search the entries in the address book directory services database:
To test the settings, click the Test button and enter a user name as it will be entered on the QuickCapture Desktop application. This verifies that an email address and display name can be found for the user on the LDAP server.
