Hi,

Using the LDAP service of a Lotus Notes / Domino server, I cannot
get the telephone attribute for people. Sad it is but Lotus like M$
call it telephonenumber. I use 'net/ldap' for this which works fine
for
other attributes. Net::LDAP#search delivers an Array of
Net::LDAP::Entry objects, and I can call attributes like the
following simplified example shows:

ldap.search( :base => base, :filter => ldap_filter ) do |entry|
  puts "DN: #{entry.dn}  Name: #{entry.givenname} #{entry.sn}"
end

Now, it looks like the telephonenumber attribute is not delivered.
Having done a simillar application in Perl (using Net::LDAP) which
still works with the same LDAP server and parameters, I know the
attribute should be there. But the following results in a
NoMethodError exception.

ldap.search( :base => base, :filter => ldap_filter ) do |entry|
  puts "Phone: #{entry.telephonenumber}"
end

Using entry.telephone doesn't help, and adding the attribute
list to the Net::LDAP#search (e.g. [:dn, :sn, :telephonenumber])
doesn't help.

Btw: In the above code block I tried entry.methods.sort
and was really surprised it did not show things like 'dn' or
'mail' as its methods; however they are working.

Any idea how to get this telephonenumber attribute?
