We're using a PC and a MacBook at home which are connected via a local network. We'd like to have a "master" address book for both computer, so that when contact information is changed on one of the computers, the change can be automatically also synced with the other computer.
At the moment, we're using the MacOS X 10.6 AddressBook.app and Outlook XP on Windows XP for managing addresses, but we'd be also willing to switch from outlook to something different, if it would make things easier...
How can I set up an LDAP server on the PC or on the Mac which makes available addresses, email addresses, phone numbers, birthday dates and notes of contacts to the computers in the (private LAN) network?
- which (free) software is best suited? OpenLDAP?! Or are there tools in Windows or OS X which let me create such a server directly?
- can the server import the local address data from Apple Address Book and Outlook XP?
- where can I find a good tutorial?
I do not want to sync or store any contact information in or via the internet for privacy reasons!
