Dualog Connection Suite Office currently consists of the Dualog Address Book Replicator.
The Address Book Replicator makes it possible to replicate the company address book to the Dualog Cloud and all company ships. The component uses the LDAP protocol for standardized integration. This makes it easy to replicate address information from master data directories such as Microsoft Active Directory.

LOGGING AND MONITORING
The Dualog Connection Suite Office may be monitored by watching the log files created under the Logs subfolder (default in the %ProgramData%\Dualog folder).
You may change the Log folder by clicking the Logs icon in the Dualog Connection Suite Office Control Panel and then clicking the Log to file system button.
WARNING: Enabling the Debug or Verbose logging levels may produce excessive amounts of log data. Use these logging levels for support purposes only.
Logging may also be done to the Windows Event Log.
Enable logging to the Windows Event Log by clicking the Logs icon in the Dualog Connection Suite Office Control Panel and then selecting the Log to Windows Event Log checkbox.
The files in the Config data folder should undergo backup on a regular basis.
No configuration data is stored in the Windows Registry.
- How can replication be triggered manually?
- The replication may be triggered at any time simply by running the application itself.
- What kind of LDAP servers are supported?
- The product has been tested against the Microsoft Active Directory and OpenDJ LDAP directory servers.
- I get "LDAP Operations Error" when performing replication
- This could be caused by attempting to replicate an attribute that the LDAP directory server does not support.
- I get "Authorization has been denied for this request" when performing a replication
- This error is most likely caused by the Dualog user not having the Webmail Company Address Book function access enabled
