6.3.7 Name Compression and Decompression
The server can choose any compression algorithm, as long as the compressed stream can be decompressed using the following name decompression algorithm. When the server compresses the names for the LDAP ping response, if compression fails, the response of the server is documented in "Response to Invalid filter" (section 126.96.36.199). When the server compresses the names for the mailslot ping response, if compression fails, the server does not send any response back to the client.
