    Default iPhone 3.0 contacts LDAP

    Anyone got a way to use LDAP on iPhone 3.0 to add contacts to the iPhone... I got IMAP email and CalDAV working with the Zimbra server, but the contacts using LDAP would make desktop syncing less needed...

    If you have port 389 open on your firewall you can add an address book to the iPhone and point it to your Zimbra server and it will pull in your contacts. We did it as a test here for one of our IT people who has one.

    Go to your settings and go to mail and add account. Select other and select Add LDAP account and add your settings. Should be good to go.

    We played with it once and got it to work. I went back and looked at the settings we entered on the iPhone to make sure I had them correct. But like was said, in order to get this to work right now, you have to open that port up to the world which exposes your email accounts to spammers.

    No. I tried several clients with no luck. For testing, 389 is open.

    It's not a good idea to expose your Zimbra LDAP to the outside world as it's not, as yet, secure.

    I agree with you there. It's not a good idea but they were asking

    Agreed. If you do that, anyone can browse your ldap and harvest the addresses/names.

    Instead, you might use a VPN. Otherwise you should wait for secure ldap and/or Carddav support.

    and by not secure you mean that anyone can access it without a password?

    Any ideas when this will be secure? Or another way to get a shared address book on an iphone for my company?
