A new type of network address has been added with Novell eDirectory Services v8.x. This new type extends the previous set of available NET_ADDRESS_TYPE values for NDS attributes with the SYN_NET_ADDRESS syntax.

Servers and other NDS objects may have addresses of type NT_URL (with the decimal value: 13); these addresses contain zero-terminated, double-byte strings with URLs.

Examples for possible entries of type NT_URL may include addresses as the following:

  • ""

  • ""

  • "ldap://"

  • ""
