Subject Re: Ldap API Custom Controls

So I added the controls, but they don't seem to be working. We are getting a error code 53
(unwilling to preform) when we add the control to our request, so assuming there is something
wrong with the control, but don't know enough about ldap or the library to know what. Any
ideas on what to try or what might be wrong?

Thanks for the suggestions and code examples. I'll work on adding this new control and let
you know if I have any issues.

FTR, the code I provided yesterday night in one of my previous mail took
me around 30 mins, all included. For a more complex control, like
syncrepl, that would have takne a bit more time, mainly because you want
to add unit tests to cover teh various cases.

Now, I think that we should provide a bit of documentation about how to
implement a control...
