I have WinXP and I want to connect to it using JNDI to get the users informations..
I have read from sun tutorial the following :

Hashtable env = new Hashtable();
env.put(Context.PROVIDER_URL, "ldap://localhost:389/o=JNDITutorial");
but the problem is I have never used win active directory before, so I

don'tknow its syntax inside my system.
what should I put instead of : ldap://localhost:389/o=JNDITutorial
to access the MS active directory ?
what should I put instead of o=JNDITutorial to access the users informations ?
should I download LDAP server for windows ?
your help is really appreciated ....
