Angry Problems to access Active Directory in VB.NET..

Hi everybody,
I've been searching for days to find a way to access Active directory database from my VB.NET appz and nothing made good results so far.. The Active directory DB is located onto a Win2k3 server but we have another on a NT4 server too.. Neither worked.. First, I was having a "Server not operational" error message, but fixed it in putting more parameters into the DirectoryEntry creation string. But now, I always get a "A referral was returned from the server(0x8007202B)" error message.. I tried to change as many things I could, but it still bugs me.. Any Idea?!??
Here's the source:
================================================== =
Dim oRoot As DirectoryEntry = New DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" & Me.mServer & ":389/DC=Dynanet,DC=com", "test", "test", AuthenticationTypes.Secure)
Dim oSearcher As DirectorySearcher = New DirectorySearcher(oRoot)
Dim oResult As SearchResult
'it bugz at this line, right on the For declaration
For Each oResult In oSearcher.FindAll
If Not CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("cn").Value) = "" Then Dim User As New LDAPUser(CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("uid").Value), _ CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("givenName").Value), _ CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("desc").Value), _ CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("email").Value), _ CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("phone").Value), _ CStr(oResult.GetDirectoryEntry().Properties("sms").Value)) Me.Ha****ems.Add(User.userId, User) Me.LisItems.Add(User) End If Next oResult Catch ex As Exception MsgBox(ex.ToString) Finally oRoot = Nothing oSearcher = Nothing oResult = Nothing End Try

Thanks all!

I already looked on Google, MSDN and everything else.. But they only tell me that "A referral return from the server" correspond to LDAP error Code LDAP_REFERRAL without telling how to fix the issue I have..

Anybody has a concrete idea?

Thanks in advance!
