If you are not using anonymous binding, type a username in the User name field. Type a Distinguished Name (DN) to specify the credentials used to query the LDAP server. For DN, enter the common name, organizational unit, and domain. For example, type uid=admin,ou=Administrators,ou=TopologyManagement,o=NetscapeRoot. Separate the values with commas but do not use spaces before or after the comma. The values can include spaces, for example, Command Center.
Type the password in the Password and Confirm Password fields.
To specify where the search for users begins, enter a Distinguished Name in Base DN. For example, ou=Administrators,ou=TopologyManagement,o=NetscapeRoot, searches all organizational units under the domain.
To narrow searching to only particular types of objects, type a value in the Filter field. For example, (objectclass=person) will narrow searching to only person objects.
