This isn't m68k specific, you actually wanted to ask this on
debian-user. In any case, an LDAP server isn't supposed to talk HTTP
(the protocol a web browser speaks), it obviously talks LDAP; so the
fact that you cannot see it in a web browser, is expected and normal
behaviour. If you want to view the data of your LDAP-server
graphically, I suggest that you either try the tool 'gq' in the package
of the same name, or that you write a webinterface using php4-ldap. If,
however, you read somewhere that mozilla is able to speak LDAP, then you
misunderstood what was said there; mozilla is indeed able to communicate
with an LDAP-server, but only through the 'agenda' thing it has, and it
is only able to query for inetOrgPerson objects.
