Title : Conversion of LDAP Schemas to and from SLP

This document describes a procedure for mapping between SLP service
advertisments and LDAP descriptions of services. The document covers
two aspects of the mapping. One aspect is mapping between SLP service
type templates and LDAP directory schema. Because the SLP service
type template grammer is relatively simple, mapping from service type
templates to LDAP types is straightforward. Mapping in the other
direction is straightforward if the attributes are restricted to use
just a few of the syntaxes defined in RFC 2252. If arbitrary ASN.1
types occur in the schema, then the mapping is more complex and may
even be impossible. The second aspect is representation of service
information in an LDAP directory. The recommended representation
simplifies interoperability with SLP by allowing SLP directory agents
to backend into LDAP directory servers. The resulting system allows
service advertisements to propagate easily between SLP and LDAP.

feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"

exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
