No I am not looking for a TID on how to generate a CSR in iManager or ConsoleOne, nor do I need to know how to sign a CSR. Spent over an hour telling Novell support that, finally cancelled the SR after waiting over 15 min for a response..

Reason - got a linux guy (only likes ubuntu) that is trying to setup a radius server for a client. Needs to LDAP query eDir for user names/passwords.
Have helped set this up in SLES or open SuSE prior with good success.
He sent me a CSR that I signed and gave him a base64 file (asked if that is the format he needed, no answer).
Here is what he sent me:
When I try to connect to radius is not able to setup a connection.
Listening on authentication address * port 1812 Listening on accounting address * port 1813 Listening on proxy address * port 1814 Ready to process requests.

He is having issues getting LDAPs working with the cert. I can browse all day long with a LDAP browser using LDAPs.

I saw a TID the other day that highlighted what pieces were needed for a 3rd party OS to generate a CSR that I could sign with the eDir CA. OF course I did not need all of that on that day so I did not write down the TID number, grrr.
Now I cannot find the magic words to search on and find the TID.

any help MUCH appreciated!!!
