A number of predefined server side controls are provided as a simple checkbox options, however you can add additional server side controls to the query via the Manage Controls dialog.  The dialog is displayed via the Controls button under the server side control section, once you click on the Controls button the following dialog is displayed.

The dialog provides the ability to manage the server side controls that are included in the query. You can add, edit, or remove server side controls from this dialog.  To add a new control simply click on the add button and the following input dialog will be displayed.

You can either manually enter the OID of the control you which to include or you can use the dropdown list to select the common controls are that available in Active Directory.  The Value field is used to define the value that is passed with the control, the Value Type defines the encoding that is used for the value, Str or Integer BER Encoded value, or Non-BER encoded Integer.  The critical option is used to define if the control is critical to the operation of the query, if a control is marked as Critical and server doesn't support that control, then the LDAP query will fail with Error: (0x0C) The control is critical and the server does not support the control.

Currently only server side controls are supported, the support for client side controls could be introduced in later versions of NetTools.

When controls are added, the OID is displayed in the list, if an OID is one of the AD common controls, then the OID and AD common name is displayed.
