Best Connection method??

As a sort of parallel to my previous issues, is there an agreed upon method
that seems to work best for everyone? I'm using Direct right now only
because it makes sense to not use a TCP connection to do work that a local
process can do. Any arguments for or against LDAP?

Re: Best Connection method??

Sorry this one took so long. Here is the info according to the doc:

"eDirectory Access and Authentication
Messenger is a directory-based application. Messenger agent
configuration information as well as user information and settings are
stored in eDirectory. You can choose between two different methods of
eDirectory access:

Direct Access: The Messenger agents can log directly into eDirectory to
obtain the information they need. An advantage of direct access is fast
access to a local eDirectory replica.

LDAP Access: The Messenger agents can be configured to access
eDirectory through an LDAP server. Advantages of LDAP access include
running the NetWare agents in protected mode and providing secure
access to a remote eDirectory replica using SSL encryption."
