It depends on the tool you are using.

Basically, if you are using Java, you need to get the UTF-8 form for the
String you want to inject into the server. That's done with :

"Your data".getBytes( StandardCharsets.UTF_8 );

You can also use the Apache LDAP API method :
   public static byte[] getBytesUtf8( String string )
