Here is some sample code for doing this from a Novell Groupwise server.  Please note, this didn't require any authentication.  Your mileage may vary.  The LDAP tutorials on java.sun.com are pretty good.  Best to first try to view all of the elements.  In this case, I have to parse, because I get back one big string.
