This is the process to set your Macintosh Address Book and Mail.app programs to automatically look up people's email addresses via our LDAP server
To Search CCT's Directory
Because CCT's LDAP Directory is remote from your machine, all of it's records will not appear on your machine. Instead, begin typing the name of the person which you wish to find and their record will appear.
This will also work as you type the TO: feild in Mail.app
- Open up Address Book
Choose the 'Address Book' item from the toolbar and then click 'Preferances'....alternatively you could type CMD+, (comma)
Type in the following information
Server: ldap.cct.lsu.edu Search Base: ou=People,dc=cct,dc=lsu,dc=edu Port: 389
- Check the 'Use SSL' checkbox.
- Change 'Port' back to '389' (if it changed).
- Chose 'Simple' from the Auth Type pull down menu. The Username and Password textboxes should become ungrayed.
For the Username text-box, type in
uid=yourCCTusername,ou=internal,ou=People,dc=cct,dc=lsu,dc=eduand then type in your cct password into the password textbox
Hit OK, and then check the 'Auto Update LDAP Cards' checkbox on the main LDAP screen
- After closing out the Preferance Pane, you should now have the CCT LDAP directory listed under 'Directories'.
