Hi all. Just got my DH account up and running a couple days ago, and I would really like to have a centralized address book that I can access from all the computers that I work from. LDAP, in some form, seems like it would be the right way to go. It would be great to just run OpenLDAP on ldap.mydomain.com, point Thunderbird at it, and have it Just Work ™.
However, I realize that this is probably a no-go on a shared hosting plan. So, I’m trying to come up with some kind of creative solution of how to do this. The first thing to come to my mind is to run a “private” slapd daemon and figure out some way to run LDAP over HTTP.
So, my questions are these:
Has anyone else tried to do something like this? Cursory googling didn’t turn up anything, but maybe I was just searching for the wrong thing.
Is something like this even feasible or possible? I’m an experienced programmer, but pretty new to network programming, so I may be talking complete crazy-talk. Please, be gentle
Even if it’s technically possible, would DH frown upon it too much for it to be practical? Specifically, would a slapd deamon running 24/7 get me booted, even if it’s “private”?
Thanks in advance for any help!
