You can get there from here, part 3: LDAP is like 411 for your network

Author: JT Smith

At "LDAP is an acronym for Lightweight Directory
Access Protocol. I like to think of it as directory assistance for your network, a kind of net-enabled 411 service. With an
LDAP server running on your, er, server, directory assistance will never be far away. Sound good? Strap in because this is a
big topic. I'll get into some of the nittier and grittier stuff associated with LDAP later, but I know that you want to walk away
from this with something that works, so this is the plan for today."
