I�ve installed openldap-2.3.7.tgz on a separate Unix box and I�m attempting to interrogate it from my windows development machine.

Although I can successfully bind objects to the tree, I cannot read them back. Using an ldapsearch command I can see that my objects had been successfully bound.

However, when attempting to read them out using:

Object obj = jndiTest.lookup("cn=myRandomInt");

I got the following error:

javax.naming.NamingException [Root exception is java.io.EOFException]; remaining name 'cn=myRandomInt'

Disconnected from the target VM at '' using socket transport.

Anyone got any ideas about this?

It seems that it finds the object, but when attempting to de-serialise it, it goes nuts.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Many thanks,

How do they get the deer to cross at the signs? Or to read this tiny ad?
