ldap-abook unable to get street name in ldap-entry

I'm using an ldap server for my addressbook in evolution , to fill the database I use a cgi script called abook.cgi .. (project name ldap-abook on sourceforge) and i'm having a little trouble filling the entries via that cgi script .. It all works but i cannot get a street name in the ldap entry .. so all my contacts in my evolution addessbook are complete with postalcodes and city names etc , but no street name/housenumber ... , when running the cgi script I can add a form field called streetname but nothing happens when i chose that opton ..
Does anyone have experience with lpdap-abook ?

I think there is only an error in the /etc/AddressBook.conf. The Entry for the street contains in the "field"-Tag the attribute type, which is set to textbox. If you set this type to "text" the "Street" will be shown.

I've had the same problem and now it works. My Evolution does not want to connect to my LDAP-Server, but with KMail it is working. The "Street"-Entry is not shown by Mozilla Thunderbird 0.6, but the important fields are recognized correctly.
