I searched on "LDAP" to see if a portable browser already exists and could not find anything.
I like to use the freeware Softerra LDAP Browser Version 2.6.
What is it?
LDAP Browser by Softerra is a unique product without known analogs. It provides a convenient Explorer-like
interface for browsing LDAP directories. LDAP Browser connects to any LDAPv2 and LDAPv3 servers. It is a handy
tool capable of operating with LDAPv2 and v3 LDAP servers, ideal for software development, web development,
system administration teams working with LDAP directories under Windows platforms. It doesn't matter what
kind of server you have to work with - OpenLDAP, Netscape/iPlanet, Novell eDirectory, Oracle Internet
Directory, Lotus Domino or Microsoft Active Directory - Softerra LDAP Browser can work with any of them,
because LDAP is an open standard specially designed to provide a universal mechanism to access directories.
Specially developed for a Win32 platform, LDAP Browser provides a software or web developer with a convenient
way to build LDAP-enabled applications and Web sites. Using LDAP guarantees a creation of real quality sites
and applications in less time. You can easily navigate all over a directory despite its possible hierarchical
complexity. With a useful directory search tool you can quickly locate and see the information you are
interested in. The LDIF export feature allows you to backup directories and not to worry about data
corruption, because you will always be able to restore your directory from backup. Softerra LDAP Browser
will undoubtedly make your life easier and your work faster and much more efficient.
It can be downloaded from here:
I do not know if it can be made into a Portable app, but the license appears to me that it would be allowed. Here it is.
Anyone ever try making it portable?
