LDAP, easiest waay to get started (Big picture)

I am styudying ldap, and I want to perform the following

I want a simple DB with two fields:  first, and second

I want to be able to add entryies to this db from within my computer

I users outside my computer to be able to connect in without authentication and read from the db

So what tasks do I have to perform from an empty OpenLDAP ?

In order to tdo this , should I perform the following

Add a .schema and .ldif in the /etc/openldap/schema directory containing the definition of the DB ?

Should I add a file to the /etc/openldap/slapd.d/cn=config/cn=schema directory?

Open in new window


What files do I need to create, or once the ldap.conf is created, can I just perform a ldapadd and let it work for me?

Open in new window


Thanks
