I am running Red Hat 6.x

Does that come with a standard LDAP, or do I have to download it

If so where can I download?

    Assisted Solution

    Like practically all software installed on Linux distributions, you use the distro's package manager to download and install it. This automatically takes care of any dependencies that may also be needed. On redhat that would be

    yum install PackageName

    (in your case the PackageName would probably be "Openldap".

    LDAP server is in "openldap-servers" package:
    # yum install openldap-servers
