Cisco 3905 with LDAP phonebook?


  Thanks to your reply,  Please allow me to explain more as follows:

    Let say I have LDAP Server, for example, OpenLDAP or Active Directory which already have the complete staff's information (Name, lastname and extension number).

    My requirement is that in case my staff would like to search extension number of other staff. He just enters staff's name using phone pad. After that 3905 will send staff's name to LDAP Server. If LDAP Server can find the extension number for this staff, LDAP Server will reply back the extension number to 3905 and then 3905 displays the number on LED.

   Is it possible?

I have tried this feature with Cisco SPA 500 series and they work very well.

Thanks so much.
