Hi,
I need to access the users in the current domain in the active directory.

i use the following code:
 DirectoryEntry oDE;
            oDE = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://134.156.16.1/CN=USers;DC=Domainname", "Username", "password", AuthenticationTypes.Secure);
         
                           DirectorySearcher dirser = new DirectorySearcher(oDE);
            dirser.Filter = string.Format("(SAMAccountName={0})", "Vijay");
            dirser.PropertiesToLoad.Add("cn");
            SearchResult re = dirser.FindOne();

i get the following error:

"A referral was returned from the server"
