details

List all the network workstations from which the user has logged in. The user's id, full name and the IP addresses of the workstations are all printed. The administrator has to specify a server that has LDAP running. In addition, a container must be set to query for users.

Usage: perl listaddrs.pl prv-nds1 ou=nts_server,ou=prv,o=novell

Setup: The administrator needs to ensure that the [Public] user has Read and Compare rights to the Network Address and the CN attribute. You'll need to download and install the perl-ldap-0.3202 module from www.cpan.org/. (This is already present on NetWare 6.5.)

Platforms: Tested on NetWare 6.5, SUSE 9.0 and WinXP with the Perl package from www.activestate.com. It should work on any platform that supports Perl.p>
