Quick Reference

A server which administers an X500 directory service. Such a server waits for requests for information from remote clients. If it can satisfy a query—for example, the details of a member of staff in the organization that runs the server—it does so. If not, it either invokes other servers which are under its control or redirects the client making the request to another X500 server.
