A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item of the LDAP Service Deployment Working Group of the IETF. Title : Practical guidance for naming and interconnectivity Author(s) : C. Weider, M. Wahl, A. Brown Filename : draft-ietf-lsd-nandi-00.txt Pages : 8 Date : 10-Apr-98 There are existing communities of LDAP, X.500 and Whois++ servers on the Internet. An LDAPv3 server can be a part of one of more of these communities. LDAP directory services would benefit from reduced naming conflicts and increased ability to locate servers and information both within LDAP islands and between LDAP and other communities. This document recommends guidelines for naming and interconnection of LDAP servers to enable the existence of communities of a loosely coupled LDAP-based directory service that can leverage the X.500 knowledge model and the existing infrastructure of names from the Domain Name System (DNS). This will facilitate the establishment of a global naming plan and the interconnection of a global directory. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-ietf-lsd-nandi-00.txt". A URL for the Internet-Draft is: ftp://ftp.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-lsd-nandi-00.txt Internet-Drafts directories are located at: Africa: ftp.is.co.za Europe: ftp.nordu.net ftp.nis.garr.it Pacific Rim: munnari.oz.au US East Coast: ftp.ietf.org US West Coast: ftp.isi.edu Internet-Drafts are also available by mail. Send a message to: email@example.com. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-lsd-nandi-00.txt". NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE" command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on how to manipulate these messages. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
