Connecting Ring contacts to LDAP
================================
It is possible for Ring to search contacts in an LDAP directory. At the moment, this is only possible with the Gnome client. This is done by configuring gnome-contacts and evolution to search LDAP for contacts.
Connecting gnome-contacts to LDAP
#################################
1. Open Evolution
2. From the contacts tab, right click and select New Address Book
3. Fill the requested information **depending on your LDAP configuration**. Here is an example:
