LDAP Admin for Linux

Linux port of free Windows LDAP Admin, client and administration tool for LDAP directory management.


Application description

After the transfer of records from the GAL (MS Exchange) environment to OpenLDAP. I was looking for a tool to manage contacts. I've tried several tools and finally I chose LDAP Admin, author Tihomir Karlovic. Program fully meets my needs but it has one flaw - it is compiled only for Windows environments.
I use mostly as a desktop linux and I was looking for a way to deploy soft in linux. LDAP Admin comes with source code, so I tried to translate it in a linux environment.
After many hours of work there is a partial success - executable code under linux.
Not all code to run on the first sighting shots, but gradually I managed to compile and run the program under linux.
