A DSML gateway (or DSML-to-LDAP gateway) is a special type of network daemon that is used to translate between DSML and LDAP. In general, a DSML gateway accepts DSML requests from clients, converts them to LDAP requests that it forwards to a directory server for processing. It then translates the LDAP response from the directory server back to DSML to return to the client.

OpenDS supports DSML through a DSML gateway, which is implemented as a Web application that can run in an application server.
