All, I received an email from a gentleman who had a problem using Net::LDAP (library at Rubyforge) to query an Active Directory (A/D) server. He got the following error message: This happens because many A/D servers are configured to return what LDAP calls "Search-result referrals"- an additional LDAP URL that you are encouraged to query in order to get additional relevant results. The Net::LDAP library was not supporting this result-type. I'm in the process of adding it in now and will produce a patch shortly. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Another problem you are likely to see when querying A/D is that you can't get back more than 1000 results no matter what you try. This is due to an "LDAP control" that A/D uses to prevent large queries. This has already been fixed in the HEAD revision of Net::LDAP.
