Using Active Directory with ColdFusion

If you are using Windows 2000 Server on your network you probably have Active Directory installed. Active Directory is Win2K’s Directory Service, and it’ll typically store data on users, groups, and more. ColdFusion users can access the data in Active Directory without having to use any special API’s. How? Active Directory has an LDAP interface, and so you can use the standard CFML tag to access the valuable data that it contains. (Applies to: ColdFusion 3 (or later))

    How do I connect to this data? Don’t I need to know the attributes of Win2K?
