Could anyone help in the configuration of the ldap server on a SLES, OES installation.

I have the server up and running, am able to LUM enable users, have samab working as a PDC which is all working correctly. However I am trying to use the connect LDAP client to the server but am unable to get it to connect.

From an ldap client I am able to browse the server using non TLS/SSL connections and fetch the base DN but I am not able to authenticate any users to the LDAP server. I am also unable to get it to connect with TLS/SSL which is what i wish to do.

Do I have to do something with the SSL certificates from the OES server, copy them to the client??

any help would be most appricated
