CHICAGO, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Symlabs, a global leader in identity management, has released version 1.5 of Symlabs Free LDAP Browser, a handy tool that enables exploration and management of LDAP-based directory infrastructures, including details that are often hidden from view. It provides access to LDAP servers through a user-friendly GUI, and can perform common administration tasks on directory entries. The new version boasts greater speed, higher compatibility, better connection management, simplified referral handling, and improved user interfaces.

Symlabs LDAP Browser v1.5 includes major changes in several areas. It has been performance-tuned to achieve higher speed, more stability, and greater compatibility with mainstream LDAP directory servers. The connection interface has been overhauled to make creating, saving, or opening connections easier and tabs have been added. Search and bookmark screens have been re-designed for greater usability, as have display of entries and nodes,  and bookmarks have been added to schema items. Greater control of whether to follow or ignore makes referral handling simpler to manage, and functionality has been added to avoid long waits when referrals are followed.

"Symlabs LDAP Browser is a powerful multipurpose tool that every IT professional will find useful," said Jeff Zukowski, Partner and Director of Marketing for Symlabs. "It offers excellent TLS/SSL support and can access any standards-compliant LDAP or LDAPS server, including Active Directory, Oracle Directory Server, or Sun OpenDS - as well as any virtualized LDAP implementation such as Symlabs Virtual Directory Server or Symlabs LDAP Proxy. We have tested it running on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Solaris, plus major Unix variants, and we are pleased to make it available for free as a service to the IT community."
