web2ldap is known to work smoothly with the software/platforms mentioned here. If a software is not listed here does not mean it is not compatible unless it is listed in the negative list.
|Server product||Tested releases||Comments||Current Status|
|OpenLDAP||2.x||Open Source reference implementation of LDAPv3. web2ldap has some extra features for this server.||Regularly used for interop tests.|
|OpenDJ||2.4.x||ForgeRock's fork of OpenDS which works just fine. Especially using more sophisticated LDAPv3 extended controls has been tested with this. Used for interop testing of DIT structure rules and name forms.||Regularly used for interop tests.|
|MS Active Directory||W2K, W2K3, W2K3R2, W2K8, W2K8R2, W2K12||Various work-arounds were added to handle the broken sub schema in W2K. Some extra features were added for MS AD.||W2K3+ regularly used for interop tests.|
|CA eTrust Directory||8.1 and 12.0||Worked just fine. Release 8.1 used as reference server for implementing the viewer for DIT structure rules and name forms in web2ldap.||Not tested for a while.|
|Novell eDirectory||8.7.x and 8.8.x||Ships with broken schema (non-unique OIDs) but recent web2ldap versions have work-arounds for this.||Recently used for testing.|
|Netscape Directory Server||4.x||Used to work just fine but not tested for a while.||Historic|
|389 also known as Fedora Directory Server||recent||Seems to work but has subschema bugs with non-unique NAMEs and/or OIDs which requires to set schema_strictcheck=False.||Tested rather rarely|
|iPlanet/SunONE Directory Server||5.x and 6.x||Seems to work but has subschema bugs with non-unique NAMEs and/or OIDs which requires to set schema_strictcheck=False.||Tested rather rarely|
|Oracle DSEE (formerly Sun)||220.127.116.11.2||Seems to work but has subschema bugs with non-unique NAMEs and/or OIDs which requires to set schema_strictcheck=False.||Tested recently (04/2015)|
|Lotus Domino LDAP||R5.x, R6.x and R7.0.x||Most times it works quite well. Persistent connections are dropped very fast - depends on the version I guess. web2ldap contains a work-around for the null-byte terminated string of the namingContexts attribute in Domino/LDAP's RootDSE.||Tested rather rarely (last time 7.03)|
|Siemens DirX||6.x||Worked just fine. Added support in web2ldap for searching the administrative sub entries.||Not tested for a while.|
|Innosoft Distributed Directory Server (IDDS)||unknown version||Only read-only tests were done and the product is not available anymore for years.||Historic|
|Critical Path InJoin and Directory Server 4.2||4.x||Worked without problems.||Not tested for a while.|
|Syntegra||unknown version||Read-only tests on a public address book server worked.||Historic.|
|IBM Directory Server||unknown version||Worked without problems.||Not tested for a while.|
|Apache DS||1.5 and 2.0M7||Simple operations have been reported to work just fine. Recent 2.0M7 caused interop problems with invalid password policy response control.||Tested rarely.|
|OpenDS||1.0 and 2.0RC||Worked just fine also with DIT structure rules and name forms.||Not tested for a while since project seems dead.|
|Isode's M-Vault LDAP/X.500 Directory Server||R14||Some glitches were resolved in web2ldap 1.0.7 to work with the M-Vault Directory Server.||Not tested for a while.|
|ViewDS (formerly View500)||6.0e11||Works also with DIT structure rules and name forms. web2ldap honors the operational attribute governingStructureRule.||Not tested for a while.|
Mozilla 1.x already had very good CSS support.
Recent versions of Firefox and Seamonkey simply work and are used as a reference.
- The web browser and file manager of the KDE project: Note the input forms enclosed in <fieldset> were not displayed by older versions. (see KDE bug #44643 RESOLVED).
- Microsoft Internet Explorer
- Support for CSS depends very much on the version used. The modern CSS files shipped with web2ldap likely does not work with IE 6.0 and before. Some minor CSS glitches with IE 7.0.
- Commercial browser. Aims to be fast and small. Also very good CSS support.
- Google Chrome
- Simply works.
- A text-mode browser - still supported for those who have to use a terminal.
- Another text-mode browser capable of handling tables and displaying images (if the terminal allows it).
- Please do not use outdated RPM packages...
- Windows 32
- Sucessfully tested.
- There is even a FreeBSD port of web2ldap.
- Solaris 8, 9 and 10
- You can grab some of the packages needed from www.sunfreeware.com.
- Apache HTTP Server
- I don't have to write any explanation about this one...
- several modes possible, also used within Æ-DIR configuration via mod_proxy_uwsgi
- ***TO-DO: Update for WSGI***
- ***TO-DO: Update for WSGI***
- Entrust Authority
- Works fine with directory structure and content written by Entrust Authority6.0 (tested with Siemens DirX and CP InJoin). Displays encryption certificate in attribute userCertificate just fine. The Entrust specific attributes (e.g. roaming profiles) can be downloaded as binary data.
Unfortunately web2ldap is known not to work with the following misbehaving software or the software is ancient and thus could not be tested with recent web2ldap releases for years:
Many Netmeeting directory servers (most times DNS alias
starting with ILS) contain invalid NUL-terminated strings in some
rootDSE attributes. This can't be worked around easily without
breaking LDAP implementation.
I also did not find a ILS server which allows non-exact searching or any other useful stuff for general LDAP use.
- Netscape Communicator 4.x
- Chokes on rendering modern CSS rules. CSS files shipped with web2ldap distribution likely does not work with this anymore. Anyway you should not use this ancient browser anymore. If you still have to use it consider writing your own simple CSS file.
- OpenLDAP 1.x
- Open Source implementation of LDAPv2 which is not supported anymore.
- Lotus Domino LDAP R4.5x and 4.6x
- Sometimes behaviour of this LDAP server was very weird making it almost unusable. LDAPv2 if I remember correctly. Not tested since years.
