I have a schema for ldap already but I am unsure if I am doing this
correctly?  Which source are you refering to?  Are you speaking of the
mod_vcard_ldap.erl file?  The users do authenticate without issues but
when a user trys to update their vcard I get a

RECV: <iq from='noone at myjabserver.net' to='noone at myjabserver.net/Exodus'
id='jcl_21' type='error'><vCard

from Exodus's xml debug window (note: The name's and addresses in the
response above have been changed for security reasons;-)  I guess I either
don't have the schema correct or I don't have the permissions correct for
the user to update their ldap info?  So I did try mod_vcard_ldap with the
ldap authentication for ejabberd.

I perfer to use the built-in LDAP {auth_method, ldap} for authentication
since it is already working the way I want it to but would like to save
the vcard data in ldap as well and allow the users to update the vcard as
they wish.

Thanks again,
