hi girls n guns, This is sathish again. This time I somewhat progressed with the sun java one enterprise edition server. I downloaded the enterprise edition server and directory editor and I am succeeded in configuring both and now it is showing the directory editor startup page and it is asking for bind DN, password and some other info. I came to observe that while installing enterprise edition server in my local system it created instance with name "infobio.com" If I try it is showing unable to establish connection with server. I am not in a state to understand what is this. Please, help me in resolving this issue. I am trying all these because I want to configure the LDAP server (Netscape Directory Server) in my local system and then I want to do JNDI programming and get the results and later want to go with the original server machine after it got success. Waiting for a good response from everyone. Thanks a lot in advance, Bye Bye.
