I have the same situation going on. We seem to be connecting to the LDAP server, but like Jay, no user data. And I'm getting no help from Ricoh TSC. I especially don't like the condescending attitude I get from them. (Sorry...just had to say that.)

Art,if you remeber, could you tell me where you got this information, my techs are giving me a hard time with this and maintaining that RICOH will not support this.
