The problem is, when I want to create two separate connections with different

In case I call the ldap_set_option( ld , LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_KEYFILE, private_key)
after obtaining the ld (i.e. after calling ldap_initialize), I don't get
LDAP_OPT_SUCCESS (the return value is -1; I got nothing more if I subsequently
