Jeff, Jeff, Jeff. That's easily disproven.

It's compatible with itself ....


(well, certain versions of itself, anyway)

I think the OP should be able to make LDAP queries to any of the DCs
(Domain Controllers). He may have to check to see where the DC is (IP
address), if it's using the default LDAP port of 389, if it's using
LDAP over SSL (which I believe is possible), etc.
