I have a DLL, but it has been built from the 3.2beta source and wouldn't be
compatible with a UMich 3.0 server. If Control Data used the UMich 3.0 code
then chances are good that it won't understand the fixed protocol tags in
3.1 and higher releases. I'll email you my DLL and LIB files; if the DLL is
no good you should be able to use the LIB against the 3.0 LIBLDAP.DLL.
