Anyone aware of a web/IIS-based phonebook style interface to Active Directory for looking up contacts?

Folks -

I'm seeking suggestions for web-based/IIS-hosted solutions that will provide a phonebook style interface to Active Directory for searching for contacts.  I've found one published by a company named Dovestones Software (www.dovestones.com) that will give you an example of what I'm after.

Unfortunately, the product offered by Dovestones is riddled with lots of annoyances and bugs.  I couldn't find much else out there so I thought I'd ask here for suggestions.

The product needs to be hostable on Server 2008 R2, have a web interface, be relatively customizable with respect to what fields can be searched, what the results look like, and have export functionality to formats such as PDF, XLS, etc.  64-bit applications are preferred but are not a requirement.

Let me know if there's any other data I can provide to help make this easier.

rDirectory info from their web site: http://www.namescape.com/Products/rDirectory/CommunityEdition.aspx

Thank you very much for your input.  Their products look like they might be something that will work for me.  I am investigating them further.  I'd happy award you points for this answer but the question is already closed.

If you'd like me to open a new one to award you, reply here and I'll do that.

It's more about helping vs. the points. I figured that I would post and that you could decide whether or not to accept the answer as opposed to posting with an objection to closing the question.

Works for me.  Thought I'd offer.  :)

I certainly appreciate the help, thank you much.  I believe we've crossed paths before on here.

If you know anything about AD DNS, see a new question I just posted regarding Reverse Lookup Zone consolidation.  ;-)
