Environment

You have enabled LDAP feature on MTA and want to test it. Note, despite this is a setting on MTA, it is gwadminservice which needs to be stopped and started to start listening the LDAP on given port .

Situation

If you set it up and want to test it, you can use Linux open source ldapsearch command to test this LDAP feature.
Here is example of syntax to get all users listed:

ldapsearch -h <LDAP host IP> -p <port> -D "<valid GW user in LDAP format>" -w <pwd> -s sub -b "<based DN>" "(&(objectclass=person))"

For a valid GW user in LDAP format you can use any GW mailbox from your system, example "cn=user1,ou=PO1,ou=DOM1,o=GW18". The "GW18" in organization object is the GW system name. You can find this information from gwadmin console -> System -> Information. The system name is mentioned in a top of this dialog, i.e. Information - <your GW system name>.
Use valid GW mailbox and its credentials which you use to login into his mailbox.
For the <base DN> can be used entire GW system, i.e. o=GW18 in this example, or you can narrow it down to users from a certain domain, PO, i.e. "ou=<PO>,ou=<Domain>,o=<GW system Name>.

The command and its output can look like in example:

ldapsearch -h 192.168.10.25 -p 390 -D "cn=user1,ou=PO1,ou=DOM1,o=GW18" -w novell -s sub -b "o=GW18" "(&(objectclass=person))"
