Kerberos - Making our Networks Safer to use

Goal for Tomorrow

Style of teaching

I came across something that I think you may be interested in. At the strategic planning committee we are discussing SSU/UIS legacy. I mentioned a document that I had come across called the “Blue Memo”, a memo send to the campus on December 1970 by the 1st SSU president Robert Spencer. Under style of teaching at SSU, it says “It should need no elaboration to note that faculty members will be expected to make appropriate use of the library and modern educational technology so as to encourage independent study habits among students. This also clears classroom and seminar time for dialog rather than burdening this time with lectures.”
Use of educational technology, burdening the time with lecture, this was 1970!

Configuring Eudora to use LDAP for Directory Services

It has been brought to my attention that with my last posting regarding Directory Services, I neglected to include the steps that need to be taken to incorporate the same functionality into at least one other e-mail client...Eudora!!!


Open Eudora and go to Preferences

Scroll down to LDAP and enter “ldap://et-ldap.uis.edu/ou=people,dc=uisad,dc=uis,dc=edu?displayName,mail” in the field just below Directory Services Host

Enter “(|(displayName=*^0*)(mail=*^0*))” in the field just below Word-wise search filter template

Check the box next to Display raw LDAP attribute names

Click OK

Access to Directory Services From Mac

Courtesy of Clay:

You can continue using your favorite mail program and still have access to the global listing of student, faculty, and staff e-mail address with a minor configuration in your mail program. Below, I have listed the steps needed to be taken in two programs. If you would like to see other examples, post back to this list by send an email to uismac-l@uis.edu or email me at cbell1@uis.edu and I will post those as well.

Steps for Entourage 2004

Go up to Entourage and open Account Settings.
Click on drop-down arrow to the right of New and select Directory Service...
Enter a name for Account name and enter “et-ldap.uis.edu” in the space for LDAP server
Click on Options at the top and enter “ou=people,dc=uisad,dc=uis,dc=edu” in the Search base
Just hit OK

Steps for Apple Mail

Open Address Book and up to Address Book open Preferences and click on the LDAP icon
Click on the “+” in the lower, left-hand corner
Enter a name in the Name field and “et-ldap.uis.edu” in the Server field
For the Search Base, enter “ou=people,dc=uisad,dc=uis,dc=edu”
Just click Save

At this point you should be able to use either Entourage (through Tools:Directory Services) or Apple Mail to look up a users email address. | 0 Comments
