LDAP Admin: Command line parameters - old style

Command line parameters - Old URL style

Note that this URL style is deprecated. The support is provided solely for compatibility purposes. The new RFC-2255 URL format should be used instead.

URL Syntax

Syntax of the LDAP URL is similar to that of the URL's used for the connection to ftp servers:
Protocol used to connect to the LDAP server. Two types are supported: ldap for unencrypted and ldaps for SSL encrypted connection.
FQDN of the account which will be used to bind to the LDAP directory. If this parameter is omitted LdapAdmin will connect as the anonymous user.
Password for simple authentication. This parameter requires user parameter to be specified. If it is omitted password will be queried at connection time.
DNS name or IP address of LDAP server to connect to.
TCP port number. This parameter is optional, if it's not specified LdapAdmin will use default LDAP ports (389 for ldap protocol, and 636 for sldap)
Base DN (a path which will be considered as the server root for this connection).


An anonymous connection to a server with a DNS name ldapadmin.sf.net and a base dc=ldapadmin,dc=sf,dc=net:

Connection to the same server but as the user cn=a_sokoloff,dc=sf,dc=net. The password will be requested at connection time:

The same as above but both password and the port are specified in the URL:
