Can you tell me why these dont work?

        private TimeSpan GetMaxPasswordAge()
        {
            DirectoryEntry entry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://SERVER1:3268");
            entry.AuthenticationType = AuthenticationTypes.Secure;

            DirectorySearcher searcher = new DirectorySearcher(entry, "(objectClass=*)", null, SearchScope.Base);
            SearchResult result = searcher.FindOne();
            TimeSpan maxPwdAge = TimeSpan.MinValue;
            if (result.Properties.Contains("maxPwdAge"))
                maxPwdAge = TimeSpan.FromTicks((long)result.Properties["maxPwdAge"][0]);
           
            return maxPwdAge.Duration();
        }

//-------------------
                    searcher = new DirectorySearcher(entry, filter, new string[] { "maxpwdage" });
                    result = searcher.FindOne();
                    if (result.Properties["pwdLastSet"].Count > 0)
                    {
                        if (result.Properties["pwdLastSet"][0].ToString() != "")
                            pwdLastSet = result.Properties["pwdLastSet"][0].ToString().ToLower();
                    }

List out all the properties and see if this property exists in the Search Result properties.
It may not be available or u might have been using the wrong property name
ResultPropertyCollection myResultPropColl;
myResultPropColl = mySearchResult.Properties;
Console.WriteLine("The properties of the " + 
                  "'mySearchResult' are :");
foreach( string myKey in myResultPropColl.PropertyNames)
{
   string tab = "    ";
   Console.WriteLine(myKey + " = ");
   foreach( Object myCollection in myResultPropColl[myKey])
   {
      Console.WriteLine(tab + myCollection);
   }
}

it isnt available, but I am looking all over the net and it should be.  I cannot figure out why I can't access that property name.
