Detailed information for the notes.ini Keyword: 

LDAP_UTF8results


Short Description: Prevents the LDAP service from using UTF-8 character encoding

Description:
Prevents the LDAP service from using UTF-8 character encoding when it returns results containing international characters to LDAP V2 clients. Use this setting to support LDAP V2 clients that don't use UTF-8. If you use LDAP_UTF8Results=0, then any LDAP V2 clients that use UTF-8 may sometimes be unable to receive results returned using international characters.

The LDAP service by default or with the LDAP_UTF8Results=1 setting uses UTF-8 character encoding when returning results with international characters to LDAP V2 clients. Although the LDAP V2 RFC doesn't support the use of UTF-8, this default behavior ensures that popular LDAP V2 clients that nevertheless use UTF-8, such as Netscape Communicator and EudoraPro 4.1, can operate successfully with the LDAP service.

This setting has no effect on LDAP V3 clients; the LDAP service always use UTF-8 for LDAP V3 clients, for example Microsoft Outlook Express or Notes R5 clients.





Default value:
None, although without this setting the LDAP service uses UTF-8 character encoding when returning results to LDAP V2 clients.

UI equivalent:
There is no kown UI setting for this notes.ini variable. But you can specify this setting in the notes.ini settings tab of the configuration settings document.
