(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) OpenLDAP Software FAQ : (Category) Common Errors : (Answer) ldap_*: Can't contact LDAP server
The "Can't contact LDAP server" error is usually returned when the LDAP server cannot be contacted. This may occur for many reasons:
  • the LDAP server is not running; this can be checked by running, for example,
            telnet <host> <port>
    replacing <host> and <port> with the hostname and the port the server is supposed to listen on.
  • the client has not been instructed to contact a running server; with OpenLDAP command-line tools this is accomplished by providing the -H switch, whose argument is a valid LDAP url corresponding to the interface the server is supposed to be listening on.
