Ah, OK, yes, with the bindDN I also found it working, and its fine for my 
testing purposes, I don't want to put username/passwords into configuration 
files on the server. In the meantime I opened a service request at IBM so that 
they may hopefully tell me how to enable anonymous compare on the LDAP 
service, since I haven't found a hint on it in the IBM documentation. Even the 
guy on the phone was a bit unsure about the issue ;)
Its not a too urgent issue for me, either I get a sufficient answer from IBM, 
or I'll wait for future apache. Just wanted to make sure I don't overlook 

Thanks to everyone.
