Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've been trying to setup and configure openLDAP on my Fedora Core 6 (64bit) for couple of days now... all lead to no luck. I followed closely to this guide and here are samples of my config files:
access to * by * read
index objectClass eq,pres
index ou,cn,mail,surname,givenname eq,pres,sub
index uidNumber eq,pres
When I do service ldap start, it starts without problems.
Here's an ldif I've created:
When I do ldapadd -x -D "cn=Manager,dc=gofigure,dc=com" -W -f /etc/openldap/gofigure.ldif it adds successfully.
But when I do ldapsearch -x -b -h ' ' -s base '(objectclass=*)' namingContexts it outputs the following:
Tinkster, thanks so much for a quick reply.
After issuing ldapsearch with recommended parameters, I got the following output:
# extended LDIF
# base <> with scope subtree
# filter: (objectclass=*)
# requesting: namingContexts
# search result
result: 32 No such object
# numResponses: 1
I see that my db contains 2 entries. But I still can not connect to my ldap server using LDAP browser\Editor. I tried binding anonymously, appending base DN and even with SSL... still unable to.
Now, SSL is another issue... when I do ps aux | grep ldap I see that it is on SSL, but I have only port 389 open and I did not configure SSL nor SASL anywhere... Maybe I'm not seeing something? Why doesn't it want to connect?
Hey thanx a lot guys... you know how it is... you tear your hair off trying to solve a complicated piece but it all comes down to a very simple stuff... Which of course was in my case too... i didn't have a firewall rule set on my server to allow ldap port (although router does allow it)... So yeah, now it all works flawlessly. Thanks again.
