Does ODSEE support anonymous binding?

Does ODSEE support anonymous binding?
I am working on a project to demonstrate an application running on Red Hat Linux and we are using Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition 11.1.1.3.0 for our LDAP server. I am using a software product that connects to the LDAP server anonymously to search for data. Moving forward we would like to have this software changed to support non-anonymous binding, but in the short term it would be much easier if I could enable anonymous binding in ODSEE. Is this possible?
I have not been able to track down any properties of the LDAP server that allow this. I have been researching creating a Directory Proxy Service, which does seem to have some capability of connecting anonymously, it is not exactly clear to me how this would work and that sure seems like it is adding a pretty big layer of complexity.
If it is possible to enable anonymous binding with ODSEE, how is it done?
Thanks,
Brent

Thanks for the quick reply. I saw the property "require-bind-pwd-enabled" and I changed the value but it did not fix this issue.
That page you reference is interesting. Maybe my problem is not necessarily with "anonymous binding" but with access control. How the software is acting is that it connects and execute searches without throwing any errors (a Java application using JNDI) but the search results are always empty. That is how the LDAP Browser tool I am using acts as well. If I choose to connect anonymously I connect okay but I do not see any data.
That page says:
+"With access control, you can give anonymous users whatever privileges you choose. Often, anonymous users are allowed to read non-sensitive data from the directory, such as names, telephone numbers, and email addresses."+
I will do some searches to try and see what I can find, but if anybody can point me in the right direction on how to enable an anonymous user to search for data that would be great.
Thanks,
Brent
