For Name, just enter Address book, and for Server, enter the IP address of your LDAP server (or 127.0.0.1 if you are working on the server), as shown in Figure 26.1. Leave the port as 389, which is the default for slapd. Switch to the Details tab, and set Search Base to be the DN for your address bookfor example, ou=People,dc=hudzilla,dc=org. Set Search Scope to be Sub so that Evolution will perform a comprehensive search. To finish, click Add Address Book.
