I ran netstat -a and port 389 is listening. Ran telnet from the exchange
server using 127.0.0.1 and port 389, I seemed that I got connected put the
system did not display it, and when I hit enter I get blank line entries.
I also, configured OE (4.01, SP-2) on the exchange server itself and tried
using LDAP, did not work.
I tried using both the machine name and the ip address to use LDAP did not
work. What else can I try, reinstall Exchange SP-3?
