Using LDAP api to get GAL


Im trying to develop a simple application wherein i get the GAL (Global Address List) from the Exchange Server. This is similar to the Lookup function of the Address Book. I was told to use the LDAP api but i just can't get it to work. I've tried the tutorial in the api but still no luck. I always get communication_error. Im not sure whether i connected to the server successfully or not, since the api does not contain any information about the said error. Can anybody shed some light about this? is there something i need to configure in the BES or the Exchange Server for this to work?

Also, if somebody was able to implement the LDAP api successfully, can you please post a simple tutorial about it? appreciate it a lot!
